What are your favorite math texts?

As a math teacher I am always interested in new books, I have currently finished "The Joy of X" and "The Code Book" and found them extremely interesting. What books have you read, that involves mathematics?

"Proofs from the Book" Volume 1 (and 2). Some of the mathematical ideas are hard, and the book presents a very clear exposition that illustrates the important approaches used to solve the problems.

"Through Genius the Great Theorems of Mathematics" by Dunham is a great read.

I recently read "Chaos" by James Gleick. It was really readable, had good diagrams, and lots of recent history with the math.

How about New Horizons in Geometry by Tom Apostol and Mamikon Mnatsakanian! Wonderful illustrations! And many Archimedes-style innovations!
