Here's two classics and two new books:

Hernando de Soto's _The Mystery of Capital_.
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0465016146/104-5823946-2584705?v=glance

Fred Brooks' _The Mythical Man Month_ (the anniversary edition).

Paul Graham's _Hackers and Painters_ was a fun read.

IMHO, the best book of the year is definitely Darrell Calkins' _Re:_.
