    Best Real Analysis text?

    I was 4.0GPA in multivaric calculus and physics and taught myself calculus from Stewart and was wondering what is the best real analysis text, Rudin, Pugh, or??
    aren't there issues with Rudin?

    Rudin is a wonderful book. But the main issue, in my opinion, is that it was written for a different generation of students. It is not intended for self-study.

    If I were you, I would look into Elementary Analysis: The Theory of Calculus by Ken Ross.
