    Any Books by Paul White, (Sound On Sound editor), and of course Sound On Sound itself.

    ELectronic And Computer Music by Peter Manning is a good read, though very advanced for me in some places. It deals with the very roots of electronic composition and is relevant to anyone here who uses a computer to make any sort of sound.

    Paul White is incredible, he did part of the basic series, I think he did basic Effects & Processors, great book for under $10 with loads of information.

    He has to be one of the better writers of production out there... He's easy to read and understand.

    Books concerning overall success in life:

    "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill
    -A MUST MUST ABSOLUTELY MUST read book about pretty much how to use the most valuable asset you will ever have - your head.

    Any other books by him are great as well.

    Music Theory

    "Theory of Harmony", "Counterpoint" and "Fundamentals of Composition" by Arnold Schoenberg - a contemporary composer, the first 2 books will give you a wealth of knowledge that can pretty soon teach how to compose entire symphonies.

    "6 Steps to Songwriting Success" - Jason Blume, a good read with some real gems.

    And add some other stuff dudes, I aint doin all the reading.
    To add to that list my friend I bring the following to the table...

    Life and Financial:

    Rich Dad, Poor Dad [Robert T. Kiyosaki]
    - If I was on my death bed and had to pass on last minute
    advice, it would be to read this book.

    The Slight Edge [Jeff olson]
    - Another great book on the same scale as Rich Dad, Poor Dad.

    How to Win Friends and Influence People [Dale Carnegie]
    - Again, a great book to read, especially while looking to better
    yourself in this industry.

    and pretty much everything else by John C. Maxwell and Robert T. Kiyosaki too.

    Music:

    www.perfectpitch.com
    (not a book, but audio CDs) helps you to... oh hell, go to the site and it will explain

    Phobik1 already listed what I would list, as far as other books.

    Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way, if they get mad at you, you'll be a mile from them and they'll have no shoes.

    Think and Grow Rich was going to be the book I was going to read before I got Rich Dad, Poor Dad. I just started with the other, but I am definately aware of it and it's on my list.

    Curtis Roads: Microsound
    On granular synthesis & experimental composition.

    Trevor Pinch & Frank Trocco: Analog Days - The Invention and Impact of the Moog Synthesizer
    Well, the name pretty much tells it. There's a lot of other musical history revolving around the Moog in there as well.

    David Toop: Ocean of Sound
    On ambience of sound.

    "Making Beats: The Art of Sample Based Hip Hop" is a must read. It's real producers talking about ethics of sampling, sampling from vinyl vs. cd, what is real hip hop and why a lot of the producers interviewed for the book don't like RZA's beats. There's much more than that though, just read it.

    Well, its only a must read for sample-based hip hop producers. A very, very, very small percentage of music producers out there.

    True. It is an interesting read even if you don't sample though.
