I find such "what single book would you take to the lonely island"-questions kind of artificial. It assumes one guru writing the one-and-only book that changed your life Wink | ;-)

I could list many books that influenced my way of working.
My attitude is to also buy a book if it has the two pages worth it. With that attitude, you hardly can name the one single book.

Software construction is to a good part a craft - so I like "Code Craft" from Pete Goodlife, to name just an arbitrary one.

Cheers
Andi
