This is perhaps the most relevant book for you from that list as a budding investor. Told from the perspective of a founder is [Venture Deals](http://www.amazon.com/Venture-Deals-Smarter-Lawyer-Capitalist/dp/1118443616).
This is the best book on the VC business itself is [Business of Venture Capital](http://www.amazon.com/Business-Venture-Capital-Practitioners-Structuring/dp/1118752198/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1425328716&sr=1-1&keywords=the+business+of+venture+capital).
