agreed. the milnor book is by the master, and the gp book is written for advanced undergrads.

Milnor's book indeed. As with all of Milnor's books the proofs are deceptively simple. Watch out.

Milnor's book is good but I think you will get more out of his expositions if you have a background in manifold theory and real analysis. You may compose reading differential topology with milnor's morse theory book for instance and then it will be much more meaningful I think.
