Maybe nobody is familiar with those books. I've never heard of any of them so I can't help you a bit. Instead of worrying about it why not just get the books and make up your mind for yourself.

I learned microprocessors the hard way, through smoke, swears, and fires.

Seriously, I learned from the large array of old 8 bit computers that used to be available. Of course, when I used them they were new. Basically pick a family you want to learn (I would recommend something in the stamp families, or some other microcontroller) and concentrate on that. Then you can ask more specific questions.

It's either that or pay for a college course somewhere. Not cheap, but not that expensive either, junior colleges are everywhere.

You have to remember we are all volunteers here. If we don't know the answer or aren't comfortable giving one then we don't.

Rather than asking what courses these texts may apply to, why not look at current course offerrings by junior colleges and universities located in your vicinity, and see what they are using for textbooks?

Texts used in courses change frequently, in particular as far as computers go. Microcontrollers continue to evolve. Many of them have far more computing power than the first general-purpose digital computers.
