Good question Carl,
Though specifically about J2EE, I think Rod Johnson's "J2EE without
EJB" is very good for J2EE developers. For general purpose
programming, the texts you mentioned are good. You might also want to
look into Refactoring by Martin Fowler; for general object-oriented
programming I learned from the OMT book (Object-oriented Modeling and
Design) by Rumbaugh et. al. OMT was a pre-cursor to UML; it's kind of
like UML without all the bloat. Much more practical in my opinion.
You might want to look into some books on algorithms, such as
Introduction to Algorithms by Cormen, when you truly want to geek out.
