Second on Miles from Nowhere and Metal Cowboy. The Barbara Savage belongs in every well-read bicyclist's library. Seriously.

It's a bit strident and long winded, but Effective Cycling by John Forester is worth reading, if not owning. Even if you don't agree with him, you owe him and all the rest of us the favor of listening to his arguments.

Also, a very strange and hair-raising book currently available at Powells: Urban Bikers' Tricks & Tips by Dave Glowacz. Disturbing but has a lot of...interesting information.
