Heidegger's Being and Time. If you can maneuver (I HATE that word, sorry) your way through his convoluted nazi ranting, you'll be just fine.

Informal Logic by Walton.

For philosophy, don't commit to only a few authors. And, TRUST ME, aim for contemporary stuff. That will help you the most. I would get an anthology on metaethics. Most, if not all, should be contemporary.

I think I read a few people suggest Nietzsche. Especially avoid him. He's cool, but not what you are looking for. He writes poetically. He's continental. Avoid anyone continental.
