If you could go back in time and tell yourself to read a specific book about beer, which book would it be?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
Tasting Beer by Randy Mosher is by far the most valuable beer book I've ever read. It covers the styles you'll encounter, the flavors, the technology, the history, the science, and more. I was a fairly knowledgeable beer enthusiast when I read it, but I wish I'd read it ten years earlier. If I had, it would have increased my enjoyment of getting to know beer ten-fold by increasing my understanding of what I was drinking.
