Map: Essential Organic Chemistry (Bruice)
I will definitely look into Clayden because I've heard a lot about that book. My thoughts as a connoisseur of fine organic chemistry textbooks, gradually collected from undergrad to grad school to postdoc to faculty position they send them to me for free now! Intermediate texts: As stated before, Clayden et al. Organic Chemistry either 1st or 2nd edition is a superb intermediate level text, although the 1st edition has more information and they tried to streamline in the 2nd edition with mixed results. IMHO, one should not study any of the "advanced" textbooks without becoming acquainted with Clayden et al.
Norman and Coxon's Principles of Organic Synthesis is an oldie but goodie, so unfortunately, no cross-coupling reactions, for example General texts: David Lewis's Advanced Organic Chemistry is a good modern one with a good balance between physical and synthetic organic chemistry.

I am lukewarm about Carey and Sundberg Advanced Organic Chemistry part B, which consists of a passable collection of reactions that a grad student should get to know and some showcase syntheses, but part A is old-fashioned, full of errors, and poorly organized and I don't recommend it for learning physical organic at all. Synthesis: The two-volume set by Warren Organic Synthesis: Disconnection Approach and Organic Synthesis: Strategy and Control are excellent tutorials to teach how to "disconnect" a molecule.
Nicolaou's Classics in Total Synthesis I is strongly recommended as a coffee table book or to have by your bedside. Mechanistic: Anslyn and Dougherty's Modern Physical Organic Chemistry is the de facto standard for most decent grad schools these days.

However, to really learn the classical topics in depth, Lowry and Richardson's Mechanism and Theory in Organic Chemistry remains indispensable. Another good one is Carroll's Perspectives on Structure and Mechanism in Organic Chemistry , a good book with an almost meditative quality that forces you to rethink everything you think you know about organic chemistry.
