How to Brew by John J. Palmer

Having started my homebrew hobby (read: obsession) this summer, this book proves very informative for beginner and professional alike. Quick to get you started, this book has endless information about the fine points of brewing that will start you off right and then develop your skills later as you learn to craft to your own taste. Highly recommended!

The Dude and the Zen Master

For lovers of The Big Lebowski this is a great little book that applies concepts and sayings from the movie and applies them to real life situations. This isn't a zen guide, it's more like eavesdropping on two guys you totally wish you could have over for coffee. The book reads as an ongoing dialog between Jeff Bridges and Bernie Glassman. It is funny and insightful.
