my suggestion, winzee

is to borrow these books from the library

if you think any of worth keeping, buy them.

personally, i find photobooks much more worth keeping than technique books, but that's me. :)

you can find both books from national library, and do a catalogue search from NLB site you will know which brands has the books available.

if you really need to buy, the first book is better, since the info won't be outdated.

set aside 20-30% of the pay or monthly allowance to buy books to your interest of learning, but before buying, spend 2 - 3 hours in the shop going thro each book which you are contemplating, if after 3 hours still cannot decide means you can buy both, if not get the one which provide the info that you're need more urgently then next time come back for the other one. Actually, I am the one who likes to grab all, but books are getting more expensive these days, hoping that the price will go down with the recession, that will be the time for shopping. In the mean time save/make/earn more money first.

make use of the library... u paid taxes for it, and there are quite a lot of up to date books there...;) though there are many information on the net, it might get a little confusing as most are not as structured as a book for beginners.

book no.2 is essential if you are a learner. book no.1 can comes later on, or you can learn by/from looking at other's works in the gallery. Book 2 is technical while book 1 is conceptual, if you cannot drive a car properly, don't think of drifting it.
