One of my first books on security, I really liked this one. It covers in depth concepts about how programs works, how them can be exploited and its internals (What the compiler actually do).

This Book is the one I follow while taking a course on Machine Learning in my faculty. It is very theorical, but it covers all the basis on Machine Learning and it is also possible to follow the book through Caltech MOOC.
