13 Tech books I actually use

This is a very busy work week, and I'm buried in DOM and databases, so here's a tech-heavy list....sorry to all the non-techies out there, but you techies, send me your suggestions!

1) CF-WACK by Ben Forta. Also know as the ColdFusion Web Application Construction Kit, but those in the know just call it the "cee-efff-wack".
2) Sams Teach Yourself SQL in 10 minutes , by Ben Forta. Ben's the MAN.
3) The Zen of CSS Design: Visual Enlightenment for the Web (Voices That Matter) by Dave Shea and Molly E. Holzschlag
4) Learning Unix for Mac OS X Tiger by Dave Taylor Because my MacBookPro rocks. And yes, it does Windows.
5) The CSS Anthology: 101 Essential Tips, Tricks & Hacks by Rachel Andrew Rachel's a great author, try anything by her and you will learn a lot.
6) ColdFusion Lists, Arrays, and Structures by Jeff Peters. My copy is falling apart I use it that much.
7) SQL for Smarties by Joe Celko Way better title than "* for dummies".
