If you are looking for more technical books and books about homebrewing process, here are my top picks for general books:
1. How to Brew - John Palmer
2. New Brewing Lager Beer - Greg Noonan
3. Radical Brewing - Randy Mosher
4. Designing Great Beers - Ray Daniels
I have read most of the popular homebrew books out there. My opinion is that these four are pretty much all you need.
The only other addition is a 'recipe' book, but highly recommended also if you want to learn to brew particular styles (particularly if you want to brew competitively): Brewing Classic Styles - Jamil Zainasheff and John Palmer.
