Which books have had the biggest impact on your career?

So I'm interested in which books you've read that have potentially been crucial in your development or given you huge insight/perspective that you didn't have prior! (Not strictly programming books)

Here's my top 3:

  1. Clean Code - Robert C. Martin (Uncle Bob)
  2. How to win friends and influence people - Dale Carnegie
  3. The Complete Software Developer's Career Guide - John Sonmez

Not programming books but they serve well for all engineering fields:

  • Statistical Process Control from the Viewpoint of Quality
  • Out of the Crisis (on Quality/Productivity Management)
  • The Goal : A Process Of Ongoing Improvement (on Quality/Productivity Management again)
  • I Know It When I See It: A Modern Fable About Quality

Yes I'm quality/productivity maniac :D
