I found most of the books on this list pretty engaging, with the exception of Design Patterns. I realize it's important, but I found it dull to the point of being unreadable, especially if your comfort zone is outside of Java/C#.
Definitely. Some leads swear by it, I think "Head First Design Patterns: A Brain-Friendly Guide" is a way better introduction to design patterns. I probably should have listed that one instead!
