Calculus vs Calculus

I'm currently doing Ordinary Level Maths for my Leaving Cert and am only a few months from completing it.
I've put down a list of subject choices, all of them being Maths-based. Clearly, I need to get better at the subject and I love it, and I am willing to get better at it over the summer (and now of course).
A number of books have been suggested to me, but the two that have stood out to me in particular are Michael Spivak's Calculus and Apostol's Calculus.
My first course choice is Pharm Chem with some computer-based Maths. Failing that, I'll go with Software Development course and I think one of these books will help me over the summer.
I only want to focus on one over the summer, so I probably won't buy both. Which should I go for and which is more beginner-friendly?

/pol/ here, considered asking about this there, but thought I'd have better luck getting some non-completely-fucking-idiotic answers here.
modern medicine has allowed us to keep people alive that otherwise would not be. insulin, for example, prolongs the lives of those with childhood onset diabetes, who might otherwise not have lasted past the ages of twelve, let's say.
what implications does this have, if any, for evolutionary genetics? have we changed humanity's genetic pool by extending the lives of those with certain conditions? what unforeseen effects might this have?
