Best book for a novice homebrewer

Last year my wife bought me a starter kit from Brooklyn Brew Shop. Included was a book with about 25 pages on the basics of beer making (ingredients, equipment, terminology, technique), plus a bunch of recipes.A dozen beer batches later, and with a few upgrades to the equipment in the original kit, my technique is such that I can consistently make good beer – from a recipe. Now I think I’m ready to take it to the next level (which I appreciate is still a pretty low level in the world of home brewing).Three books have especially caught my attention as I’ve been searching for a new resource:”The Complete Joy of Homebrewing” by Charlie Papzian”How to Brew” by John Palmer”Brewing Classic Styles” by Jamil Zainasheff & John PalmerWhich one (or two) of those would you recommend for me at this stage? Are there any other books I should be considering?
