Alongwith campbell ,look up some "advanced" books - like Bruce Alberts molecular biology of The Cell , Lehninger, etc. It is not necessary to read everything in those books. Read whichever topics interest you the most. There is also a very good site : ibiomagazine.org which has videos of some of the big shots of biology. And remember, most important is ...

I would suggest something like "The Selfish Gene" by Richard Dawkins. It covers many examples or organisms and how their behaviour at a molecular level is ultimately selfish in order to ensure survival by passing their genes, which is perhaps the most important biological function of any living organism. However, as pointed in comments below, this book ...

The Campbell Biology is a good very introductory book to biology. However, it is popular book but a very standard text book. I am not aware of any popular and introductory book that are broad enough to encompass all of biology. I would suggest that you get the campbell and in parallel you can follow free online courseware. There are lots of them. Starting ...

Population Genetics and Microevolutionary Theory by Alan Templeton covers many of the topics listed above, and is heavy on the self-learning of various population structure statistics, with examples. It is an introductory textbook with for people with some ...

If you're interested in learning about the mathematics of population genetics, Population Genetics and Microevolutionary Theory by Alan Templeton is an absolutely amazing resource. If you check out the index, here are entries under population structure: assortative mating, admixture, linkage disequilibrium, coarse-grained spatial heterogeneity, gene flow, ...

This book "A primer of conservation genetics" would suit quite well I think. In particular chapter five deals with "Genetics and Extinction" and is preceded by a lot of population genetics based theory. A beginner might also combine it with "A primer of ecological genetics" (Hartl & Conner) but you seem to have enough Pop gen knowledge to not need it! ...
