Most important piece in your arsenal?

Knowledge is something you can never have enough of. Whats the most important piece of literature in your arsenal (This website does not count lol). I've been using "National Construction Estimator" and "How to Price Landscape & Irrigation Projects" by James Huston to help estimating. I've also enjoyed E-Myth.

Whats some other good books to invest in?

Its not a book, but the most valuable thing is google! Like having the library at your finger tips. As a matter of fact, I'm surprised by some of the questions on this site. If you can't find what your looking for by doing some research online on your own, how do you ever expect to run a business.

My Master Gardner's books are probably the best industry related books I have on hand.
