Default Books you recommend

I was just curious to wonder what and all books have you personally read and recommend? I have quite a few that I have read, but have even more that I want to read.

I haven't read any of Joe DeFranco's books, but I'd love to read them.

Mark Rippetoe's Starting Strength is a must have IMO. "2nd edition".

Westside Barbell's Book of Methods is a great book.

The Ketogenic Diet by Lyle McDonald is a good read for people that like to stay lean.

The 5/3/1 Book by Jim Wendler is a good read....and very motivating.

Dinosaur Training by Brooks Kupid is a pretty good read.

Any other ones I'm missing that you guys recommend? I would probably recommend Joe DeFranco's books, but I haven't read them YET. I'll get around to reading them soon.

I forgot to add probably the best one of them all.

"The science and practice of strength training" by Vladimir Zatsiorsky.

I also like Shelby Starnes and Steve Colescott's "Lean Gains Pricipals" e-book.
Great little book on rotating high, med, and low carb days.

That's one I haven't seen yet.

If the depth of information is the same I'm sure it's incredible.
