A really really nice book is Calculus Made Easy It' s an excellent read and is very much recommended.

Spivak's Calculus is much more comprehensive but Calculus Made Easy is simpler and a lot nicer. It is also available in the public domain. I believe you should read it first.

You can check out Khan academy..It builds right from the basics...

Although I believe khan academy to be a great resource, I believe the op Is looking for something more rigorous and formal.

You might like Apostol's calculus or Courant's. Here is a download link for Apostol's calculus. https://www.dropbox.com/s/w3g8f1rgz83ofj5/Tom%20Apostol%20-%20Calculus%20vol.1%20-%20One-variable%20Calculus%2C%20with%20an%20Introduction%20to%20Linear%20Algebra%20%281975%29.pdf?dl=0

It's a problem text, so you prove things to move through the text. Unlike spivak, for example, where a topic is presented, and then you do problems.

See, if you really want to learn calculus from scratch you must go through the path of Analysis, more precisely "Mathematical Analysis". And for that I would strongly recommend the book named "ELEMENTARY ANALYSIS THE THEORY OF CALCULUS" by Kenneth A. Ross. Go through this book thoroughly, learn and understand all the concepts then pick up problems in calculus directly. While you face any problems or you come across any doubts refer any of the Thomas/Finney or Apostol or etc. etc.... Since you have learnt basic concepts and developed the ability to think I think you may not face any conceptual difficulty...
Thanks...
