    The Songwriting Sourcebook: How to Turn Chords Into Great Songs

    This is a really great book that teaches you loads about chords. It gets a little repetitive with the examples (there are tons...) but if you work through them you will be better off.
    It has some really neat tips, and finally answered all my questions about inversions and other stuff. Unfortunately, It doesn't actually teach you how to construct chords (from what I can remember).

    Anyway, great book. Get it from amazon here:

    I'd recommend Donald S. Passman's "All you need to know about the music business".

    -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.

    Think and Grow Rich is one of the best books I've read.

    Another life changer for me was "Cashflow Quadrants" by Robert Kiyosaki. Very good book and inspirational to get out of the "ratrace."

    C.S. Lews is a favorite author, and "Mere Christianity" and "C.S. Lewis and Sigmund Freud Debate God, Love, Sex, and the Meaning of Life" are two of my favorites.

    I'll second "Idiots Guide to Music Theory." If you are just getting started in production, this is a good place to start -- help you "strategize" a little better in production.
