What are your most favourite technical books or the only one book you always refer to at work, hobby projects or when you need some refreshing on some topic.

My list:

1) Introductory Circuit Analysis (Boylestad)
2) Electronic Principles (Malvino)
3) Digital Design (Mano)
4) Design Patterns (GOF)
5) Introduction to Algorithms (Cormen)

Matthei, Young and Jones, Microwave Filters, Couplers and Impedance Matching Networks is a math heavy insomnia cure that also has a lot of useful information in it.

My favourite book title is

"How to Build and Use Electronic Devices Without Frustration, Panic, Mountains of Money, or an Engineer Degree"

Stuart A. Hoenig

Pretty good book as well although I guess getting dated now. I haven't looked at it in years.

I do remember a bit discussing three prong mains plugs, how current returning through the operator is know in the trade as getting zapped, and how non-habit forming it is.

Mine too :D

I've been hunting high and low for a copy online - everyone wants to take you to the cleaners, calling it "collectible" (£60-70 - not joking).

That's the next book I want to get.

The one I'm reading at the moment and finding quite good is The Circuit Designer's Companion, 3rd Edition by Peter Wilson.
It seems to be a good blend between practical experience based rule-of-thumb and some theory to explain why.

http://www.amazon.com/Introduction-Revised-Expanded-Chapman-Mathematics/dp/0824779150/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1389471597&sr=1-1&keywords=introduction+to+set+theory

You have a very good collection of CS books!

I got a copy of that used from amazon but the binding was horrible so I returned it and now I'm waiting on my new copy to show up.

Be ware the copy of that book from apex_media listed in "good" condition, its not.

Thank god nobody mentioned 'Art of Electronics' so far. There is still hope for this world... Anyway, most of my books got replaced by Wikipedia and internet in general. For math problems I like to resort to 'Modern Engineering Mathematics' and 'Advanced Modern Engineering Mathematics'. Sometimes I use the handouts I got during my EE study.

The book I still need to start reading is 'applied control theory for embedded systems'.

Not only used books, it's common with Amazon "new" books. Be aware if the price goes down, a book might be used but in "like new" conditions.

"The Art of Electronics" is not for beginner, it's someone "who knows" as they claim, but is not there enough modern texts for advanced users? Geeeze.
