Hull vs Natenberg for Equity derivatives desk

Hey guys, I am a first year econ student at University and have been able to score a summer internship for 2023 at SocGens equity derivatives desk. To prepare for the internship and not stand there like an idiot ( since nothing in the first year of university will remotely cover anything there) I wanted to read a book on said topic to prepare. From researching I got that those two are the best and I know you can get free pdfs, but I would like to have a physical copy and can only afford one. So which one would you recommend and why ?
