Another Great Cybersecurity Books Resource
The Cybersecurity Canon of Books is maintained by Palo Alto Networks with this goal:

"To identify a list of must-read books for all cybersecurity practitioners – be they from industry, government or academia — where the content is timeless, genuinely represents an aspect of the community that is true and precise, reflects the highest quality and, if not read, will leave a hole in the cybersecurity professional's education that will make the practitioner incomplete.

Some great reads and Palo Alto takes it all quite seriously. The have an entire committee set up to review the books, and anyone can submit a book for their review and possible inclusion.

Re: Great picks
I'm sure I recommended The Cuckoo's Egg here before. 

One compelling aspect of the story is that it took place when events transpired over longer time periods - one closer to our human experience.  Stoll was able to follow the attacker's activities in real time, as most progressed no faster than a person can type.

Good list
Obviously everyones version will be slightly different but personally I would have to have Mitnick's Art of Deception. Read it many uears ago, around the same time as Cuckoos Egg, and totally blew me away as I was fairly new to the industry at the time and never come across social engineering before.

Great picks
The Cuckoo's Egg is a wonderful if terrifying book - if only for the complacency so many military sites and sys admins felt about their passwords, user accounts and walls.  Incredible and fun read but full of lessons that still apply.
