These are on my list, I'm halfway through some of them:

  1. A guide to spirituality without religion, by Sam Harris
  2. The Industries of the Future, by Alec Ross
  3. The Selfish Gene, by Richard Dawkins
  4. Head First Design Patterns
  5. Refactor, by Martin Fowler

I love the Head First series, I don't understand why they're not making new ones.

I love that series too! I learned Java from only reading Head First Java and practicing the code written in it.

You got the new (2nd) edition of "Head First Design Patterns" ?

I have the 1st. edition on my bookshelf, considering upgrading it, since it is a book and topic you can always refresh.

If you need more pattern literature, "Design Patterns Explained" is recommendable.
