Help me choose a calculus book

Hey,I have not started calculus yet but am SO keen to do so. I'd love for your suggestions on a book to start with. I love books which have a lot of theory and I would love if it explains exactly why and how they were discovered.

According to your post, you are a 10th grader, right? You will learn calculus, limits and derivatives in 11th...but you can get a head start with some books....for the 11th grade portions RD Sharma books are very good! Rohan Rao · 3 years, 10 months ago
