Good job recommending books on the process of writing code and not programming languages themselves. Books that teach a programming language might be valuable if you plan to only specialize on that language, but most of the times you can get by with what you learn from tutorials, official docs, etc. With books like these though, you can apply the concepts to every language. Writing clean code, implementing patterns, organizing code into architectures and refactoring are all important for easier maintenance of applications, especially when working with teams.
