Bryant [3] would be my recommendation if you're fresh out of the
calculus/ODE sequence and studying on your own. If your background
is a little stronger (i.e. you've had one of those "transition to
advanced mathematics" courses at the Sophomore or Junior level),
then Bressoud [2] might be better. Finally, you should take a look
at Abbott [1] regardless -- I think it's the best written
introductory analysis book that's appeared in the past couple
of decades.
