in reply to Note to Self: Read More Perl

The single most useful programming book I have read in the last three years is Strunk and White's "Elements of Style".
All White's writing is lovely; for a special treat, there are audio tapes available of him reading his own works (at least Charlotte's Web and The Trumpet of the Swan). Much of the humor in these "children's" books isn't actually accessible to children; ironic statements that have me rolling on the floor pass completely over their heads.
