Parlor Game: Baseball Books 

Earlier this week I talked about The Bill James' Historical Baseball Abstract. I liked it, but found the editing mistakes and occasional strident-ness of James' prose sometimes distracted from my enjoyment of the sheer range of James' innovative ways of looking at the game.

So for this installment of this very occasional series, my question is:

What baseball books have you found have been most useful in your understanding of the game? I'm more interested in books that talk about how to play the game and new ways to think about the game than, say, history or biography, but feel free to list whatever you'd like.
