The Optimum Nutrition Bible-Patrick Holford
-A great overview of nutritional concepts,theory and foods,I keep referring back to it.It's not always relevant to eating for bodybuilding,though,but that's a more specailized area)

The Art Of Expressing The Human Body-Bruce Lee Library
-More related to body sculpting,but still lot's of good info,training concepts,his training diaries,nutrition notes,more a motivational book though,it's inspiring reading especially if you have an interest in martial arts or Bruce Lee

The Book Of Muscle-Ian King and Lou Schuler
-Just a damn good,no bullshit,straightforward book with beginner,intermediate and advanced workouts,very good brief overviews of anatomy & physiology,with fantastic illustrations of how your body works and pretty simple eating advice.I'm not suggesting it's revolutionary or the best book on the market,but a pretty solid book you can get from most good bookstores.I recommend it to clients and gym members of all levels.
