This book outlines an elementary, one-semester course that exposes students to both the process of rigor, and the rewards inherent in taking an axiomatic approach to the study of functions of a real variable. The aim of a course in real analysis should be to challenge and improve mathematical intuition rather than to verify it. The philosophy of this book is to focus atten

He does a really great job of motivating the ideas, and gives really interesting and unusual examples, not just the normal basic examples.

Lot's of exercises for each chapter ranging from simple to pretty involved proofs (no solutions).

Above all that it's just well written and a pleasure to read.

Very nice introduction to analysis with good background and motivation of why we are interested in various theorems or problems. Even the chapter on Fourier series was excellent. Naturally, this book doesn't go too far so more difficult analysis must search elsewhere.

I have plan to come towards it later.

It's a fine book, but the second edition is much better in that it has several additional sections which cover the Lebesgue integral and some other very fine topics that the first edition doesn't cover at all. Not that there isn't plenty for a first-semester course in analysis in the 1st but the 2nd is just much better for that very reason.
