Forget the first one! I think I got that free with a magazine subscription. It was a joke.
The Ned book is a good one. More oriented towards racing but a lot of good information. However, I gotta agree with Gastro. Read for the stimulation, RIDE for the experience.
With that said, buy them both. It definitely WON't hurt to read them.
I would also take Amazon's recommendation and buy the Zinn maintenance book. It's a good "how to" to reduce the number of visits to the shop for basic stuff you can do at home or even on the trails.
