I'll vouch for 1.
I haven't read 2.
I read 1 when I was looking for something a little deeper
than Htdp to re-educate myself on the subject of programming languages.

I only just now notice that the author is someone with
whom I have had a somewhat heated private email exchanges on this list.

Allow me to take the opportunity to thank you for book Shriram. 
I got a lot out of it.
