What you're asking is extremely subjective.  The best book for me might not be the best for you, because we all learn differently.

Books from OReilly, specifically the Nutshell series, tend to be among the better ones.  (e.g. Java in a Nutshell, etc).


www.amazon.com is a good place to read ratings reviews and excerpts, and then buy it.

And it also depends upon your knowledge of related material.

However, because of the variety of topics listed, I'm quite certain that the answer is:

No.  No 1 single book exists that can help someone "master" the various topics listed above.

  I frequently use Amazon and read the reviews of books with which I am familiar.  I also take the time to add reviews when I read a new book, or if insufficient (in my opinion) reviews currently exist on that site.

There is : Google
I know that it sounds rude or may be it sounds like a joke, but you can not get familiar with all of these technologies in a short time. My personel opinion is that you don't need any book at all. Read some GOOD book about base java. To be familiar with JVM, what happens actually. When the program executes, what happens exactly. After that you will be able to get familiar with each one of the technologies listed above in a very, very short time. But there is no one single book!
You can not learn all of this stuff at once! If you try, you will look like a retired old man who is trying to learn English, Spanish, German, French, Italian...and many other languages at once.

However Google is the best option.
