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.

Spivak is a great book , but its not for those who are beginners . I have spivak too as ebook in computer .Apostol calculus is Harder than even IIT books . Problems in APostol calculus are extra ordinary hard and i suggest you to read other books first..

i think i know a russian book(in english) for basic calculus and its applications .
download it from http://en.books4study.org/ebook2175.html

To be honest I know very little about calculus textbooks, but this link has a pretty good list of math books, including Spivak, which I personally learned from. http://www.ocf.berkeley.edu/~abhishek/chicmath.htm

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!

calculus by dc pandey???omg..it should be sk goyal.but un swamy jk murti calculus is also vry good..it belongs to wiley maestro series.

Go to coursera look up calculus one and go to the Ohio state university course, then enrolled and print the free textbook . It's not complete it will take a couple weeks I think. Sorry :(

Start with clssics , Thomas and finney Calculus ( google it , you can find it for free) then go to Thomas calculus . :) It will be exciting read..
I am also in 10th , and my exams will over on 11th . Since i had no problem in reading and solving this books .
