You can probably learn something from each of them, but answers to all of your possible questions will not be in them.

In my opinion, anything in print literature is most likely obsolete by the time it makes it to bookshelves, including medical literature. So glad I am spending hundreds per semester on my textbooks. Some theory stuff is relevant for certain but for the cutting edge…forget books.

Anyways, I agree with an above poster. Plan to spend some long nights reading in the digital format of Nasioc.

This place is DEEP!
