Both the XML/PHP and ASP.NET books teach you the technologies while walking you through the construction of content management systems using what you've learned.

I read something a little while ago that they're working on an advanced CSS book, so I'm very much looking forward to see what they're coming out with even though I doubt they have anything new to teach me about CSS.

C++ Primer 5th Edition

It's great for people who are just learning plus its a great book for reference. I use it whenever I forget something, which is often (Alcohol killed too many brain cells).

Others I look into often are...

ShaderX3
OpenGL : A Primer
Real-Time Rendering
GPU Gems 2
Effective C++
More Effective C++

Not a book, but I still find that MSDN is far and away my most used reference for whenever I forget... pretty much anything.

A few of my favorites...

Programming Microsoft Windows with C#
I don't even code C#, but this is a great book for coding Windows apps with managed languages. I use C++/CLI. Written by Charles Petzol. All game tool writers should be switching to this.

Programming Windows
If you have to code ancient windows eg. Win95 apps, this is a great Win32 book, also by Charles Petzol.

Computer Graphics: Principles and Practice
By Foley and Vandam. The old and great, but still highly relevant computer graphics book.

Intel Processor Manuals
You read correctly, Intel has some of the best documenters around. I could sit in the shade with a glass of orange juice and read their CPU programming manuals all day. If you are writing games, drivers or operating systems, these books (or PDFs) will get you intimate with the hardware. Download these from intels web site.

Snow Crash
Okay, it's not a programming book, but it is about a Pizza Delivery Boy / Hacker in the best Cyber Space roller coaster ride thriller ever, written by the master Neal Stephenson.
