no they are not complementary you can choose any book actually i suggested these levels and sections but really this book (--Analysis and Design of Analog Integrated circuits by R.Gray and Meyer) the most advanced and hardest one but really useful ....so you can start with the book that you think it will be suitable with you
Just want to point out that the advanced books he recommended to you pertain more to ic design. as well as analog integrated circuit design. if you are going into another field besides ic design you might read that field's more advanced books
For beginner to intermediary I like the book "Electronics Principles" by Malvino which is published by Mcgraw Hill
This book takes you from the very simple to some advanced analogue electronics in a very reasonable and piratical way. Ideally suited to a test engineer.
