There is a lot of redundancy in the three books, but there is a valid reason for it: Dillard is helping you create a process, a methodology. And he is very excited about Smart Objects. His argument for them, in all three books, is the amount of time and effort they save you and the creativity they allow you. This is especially true when coupled with RAW - then you can do much of your adjustment layer work in the RAW editor instead of on Adjustment Layers. A great OOPS convenience.
I can't recommend one over the others - it depends on your current interest; but since all three talk about Smart Objects and the RAW editor, any one you choose will be a valuable resource.
If you opt for more than one, as I did, you will have a great mini-library, just be aware of the redundancy.
I have recommended Ted Dillard books to my brother, another post-processing amateur.
Dillard lays out an organized and straightforward workflow, and he explains the value of each step he takes. Dillard set up the workflow for commercial photography. Since professional photographers can't afford to waste time or lose images, it's both quick and bomb-proof.
I recommend it to anyone who shrinks from shooting RAW. It explains the advantages, and shows how straightforward RAW can be. I've been shooting RAW for a good while and use adjustment layers, masks and smart objects, I still found it useful to read Dillard's overview of how the technologies support each other to produce great results.
In the end, that's what I like best about the book: Dillard's priority is the photo. He's enthusiastic about technology, but only because it serves photography. He illustrates RAW Pipeline with his own photos, and it's clear that he's a photographer first and last.
