I know the Crafty boys have recommendations on books of both fiction and non-fiction, but I was curious as to what some of the board members have on their shelves as good tradecraft books, either on the basics or in-depth.
Reading some of the customer reviews at Amazon or Barnes and Noble, it's hard to know who to believe. As most of the members here either have more then a passing interest in, or have done(i.e military experience) said things, I'd like to hear what you have and would recommend. I know I've asked a couple people in threads, so I decided to make a single post for everyone to comment.
Also, if you could give a short why you recommend a book that would be great too.
