I started to read Spivak and found it enjoyable, but since it's a major undertaking I am also concerned for the practical value of reading it to my degree, I am afraid that the book is much too abstract and mathematical, but I am also not sure since as far as I know (which granted, is not much) theoretical physics highly overlaps with pure mathematics.

In a nutshell: Will it actually be useful for my degree (I am confident I want to remain in the theoretical area) or should I read another book that perhaps has a better balance between rigor and application (I've heard Apostol's Calculus to be a good option).

Cheers and thank you in advance!
