Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello, I have read a fair chunk of Munkres' Topology book and took a short introductory course during undergraduate, but I would like to learn point-set topology a little better. I have quite a bit of mathematical maturity, so that isn't an issue for me. I had a larger list of potential books to use, but I narrowed it down to Willard's General Topology and Dugundji's Topology. I was wondering if anyone here has any experience with either one or both of these books, and can provide insight as to how they compare. It would be nice to have a book that covers as much as possible. I am aware that Willard covers less algebraic topology, but that in particular is fine since I am planning on reading some algebraic topology books afterwards anyways (I recognize I may be able to learn algebraic topology right now, but I am still very much interested in point-set topology). Can anyone here help? Thanks in advance for any response.
