I have recently finished the first 7 Chapters of Baby Rudin, and wanted to move on to studying measure theory. I have heard plenty of good about each of the texts I mentioned I above, so I’m really confused as to which text I should start with. Rudin says in his book that the first 7 chapters of Baby Rudin are enough to understand this text, but I’ve also that Big Rudin is exceptionally hard. Taylor’s(General Theory of Functions and Integration) is relatively unknown, but I’ve read that it is more accessible. Royden’s is a classic, but I don’t know if my background matches it.
I would appreciate any advice on which text would be suitable for me. If you know of any other books on graduate analysis, please let me know . Thanks!
