What books related to brewing would you guys suggest to read?

The only book I've read so far is "How to Brew" by John Palmer and was hoping to start reading another one soon. I am not necessarily looking for another beginning brewer book but would definitely love to read something on designing beers, maybe a book dedicated to hops or yeast, or maybe just simply a more advanced homebrewing book. Heck, any websites that you guys think are useful I'd be interested in as well.

Thanks.

Brewing Classic styles has excellent recipes for each style.
Designing great beers is good when you are ready to really start tweaking your own recipes.
Radical brewing has good ideas and some helpful techbiques for particular styles.
I havent read brewing better beer but Ive heard good things about it.

I've checked out all the books listed and they are all really great. But as beginninger moving to intermediate realm Brewing Classic Styles was a great complement to How to Brew (my other favorite book). Gives a good base on any style you can think of.

Also I would recommend thebrewingnetwork.com, great listening. Check out Brew Strong and the Jamil Show.

+1 to Brewing Classic Styles. Extract based recipes for us beginners, with a great explanation of the style for each.
