I am not a fan of your category (1) books before getting the intuition about the underlying concepts. However while searching for such a book i came across the following which might be to your taste (note that i have not read it);

* Neural Networks and Deep Learning: A Textbook by Charu Aggarwal - https://www.amazon.com/Neural-Networks-Deep-Learning-Textboo... The author (from IBM Watson Research center) also has written several other books on related domains.

Under your category (2) though not a pop-science book, i found the following old book (hence no DL) very good to really understand the intuition behind ANNs.

* Neural Networks for Applied Sciences and Engineering: From Fundamentals to Complex Pattern Recognition by Sandhya Samarasinghe - https://www.amazon.com/Neural-Networks-Applied-Sciences-Engi...
