Zakon's Mathematical Analysis is divided in two volumes; I have not yet seen volume II (it is still in preparation), but by reading volume I you can obviously expect the same degree of didacticism on volume II. The chapters are laid out to benefit the reader's learning process and this is an important matter. I highlight the simplicity in which the authors treats every piece of the book. Zakon's Mathematical Analysis achieves a good degree of formality but still gives you the chance to learn what is being said. If you study this book, you will get the vocabulary you may lack on formal mathematics, you will get the background you need to read almost every other book on Real Analysis.
Another important thing that should be noticed is the license of this book. While institutions tell each student of Analysis to buy a fairly expensive book out there, they could be using one of great value for much less. As the license states, $300 would pay for the book for the entire institution. If you like this, drop a letter to your department and let them know about it.
