Which one is the real deal for multivariable calculus?

  1. Nov 22, 2013 #1
    I'm trying to learn multivariable calculus,and I've heard that one of these is fabulous(the authors have the same name):Advanced Calculus: A Differential Forms Approach by Harold Edwards https://www.amazon.com/Advanced-Cal...p/0817637079/ref=pd_sim_b_2?tag=vglnk-c905-20 or Advanced Calculus of Several Variables by C. H. Edwards Jr.?There 's also Functions of Several Variables By Fleming https://www.amazon.com/Functions-Se...id=1377192532&sr=8-1&keywords=wendell+fleming, is it any better?I like books with a geometric flavor but still rigourous and with a lot of depth,any suggestion would be helpful,thanks.
    P.S are any of these book too old,or have bad or outdated notion?

    I've read a bit of Advanced Calculus: A Differential Forms Approach ,it seems to introduce linear algebra with some tedious stuff especially the notation,does that make Fleming's book better?please,is there someone who used these books ,or knows something better(intuitive,rigourous and with ''geometric intuition'')?
