Which Calculus:A First Course in Calculus VS Thomas Calculus

I am a Software engineer, have learned Calculus I, and II long time ago. I want to buy a Calculus book at entry level to refresh my skill.

I bought Calculus 10th by Larson, which I cannot understand the Limits from Chapter 2. I am looking for an alternative below, could you please kindly help me decide.

I want the book which is
* easy to understand, good/solid explanation
* Good exercise with solutions
* Learn good/solid foundation for other maths topics (Multivariable Calulus, computer related maths)

Alternative beginner books to choose:

1) A First Course in Calculus (Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics) 5th by Serge Lang

2) Thomas' Calculus: Early Transcendentals 12nd - George B. Thomas JR

Thanks in advance!
