What are your all-time favorite books/instructional DVDs?

I know your list is constantly growing. But so far, based on what you've read or watched (instructional DVDs), what have been your favorites so far?

The most content filled material that has most greatly impacted your work or style?

Thanks...

I'm still 'in search of' a style but the book New Cinematographers is full of wonderful inspiration

The DV Rebel's Guide

I don't think anyone could read The DV Rebel's Guide and not benefit from it. No one knows more than Stu.
