Im looking to expand my robot books page.

Anyone have suggestions on books?

Im not looking for just any book, more specifically ones that you have read and highly recommend. Ive read many, but most are out of date or are just not very useful . . .

Beginner and expert level welcomed.

Amazon is for a list of robot books, SoR is for a list of highly recommended robot books  :P

Recommend, recommend!

Not really DIRECTLY relating to robotics, but for a beginner's introduction to PICs and programming them, I got a lot out of "PIC Microcontroller Project Book", by John Iovine.  After the very basics of setting up the programmer (Epic), the software, the PIC command set and how to write some code, it goes on to cover sensors and motor control, so it's a pretty easy step from this book to robot building.

This book has been really good for opening my eyes to the upper level theory. It's definatly a survey of a lot of robotic techniques.
