Yea she said that book has very good coverage: it goes through all the stuff you need to know. And since both of you are interested in animation I think that will be a good book for you.

Your list by the way: Does it contain both Python and MEL books or just one kind?
If I were you I would focus on learning Python over MEL - as Python is a larger language (supported by more stuff and not just Autodesk Maya). If you learn Python, you can apply those skills and that knowledge on other things such as web development. MEL on the other hand has NO USES outside of Autodesk Maya.
