An accessible but rigorous development of basic analysis that features extended discussions of important ideas, detailed examples of difficult proofs, and reinforcement of basic ideas through repeated exposure in different contexts.


emphasizes WHY various mathematical facts are true.
avoids as mush as possible the distraction of purely rote, computational aspects of calculus, and reduces all exercises (mainly composed of proofs) to a smaller series of steps.
presents each theoretical idea with several paralleling examples proceeding it.
