Default Textbooks on SMPS theory/design?

I'm now reading three textbooks on SMPS. One is in Chinese. and the other two are:
Switching Power Supply Design, Abraham I. Pressman,
Switchmode Power Supply Handbook, Keith Billings,
both published by McGraw Hill.

Now I'm searching for some textbooks covering the application of TDA16888/UCC28515/CM6800 and some recent high-efficiency designs like Active Clamp, Full-bridge(Phase-shift or so), Resonant topologies, different Synchronous Rectification applications...

Could anyone introduce some good textbooks on these topics please?
It's been a hard day's night and I've been working like a dog.

I'll add "Demystifying Switching Power Supplies" by Raymond Mack to the list.
