Main Question or Discussion Point

I can’t decide which of these two books I should start reading. They are structured very differently so it’s hard to compare them before reading them. Can anyone fill me in on there experience with these books or maybe what things one has that the other doesn’t.

Rubin has been considered as the gold standard in Real Analysis. You might get some good feedback on Amazon.

For his functional analysis there’s not as many reviews but folks do like it a lot

But Conway is a great author too

Why not check them out of your school library and use them for your work? Then you’ll be able to decide for yourself.
