Well for me it is tie between:

LSD Psychotherapy - Stanislav Grof

  1. Models for the states found in alternate states of consciousness
  2. Practical directions for psychonauts and those interested in personal growth, or automorphing

For Your Own Good - Alice Miller

	Shows clearly how subtle, pervasive and distorting the influence
	of bad child rearing practices, relation to violence and suppression
	of self, only explanation of Holocaust that I have found that makes
	any kind of sense.

Why psych books? Cuz personal growth is the key to finding values which work, and those we need very badly now...
