Favorite Parenting Books?

Hello all,
I'm doing some reading and wanted to get some suggestions. So far I've got:
Love and Logic for early Childhood
The Happiest Toddler on the Block
How to talk so your kids will listen, and listen do your kids will talk
1-2-3 Magic

Any others I should check out?

I really liked 'Parent effectiveness Training' and 'Raising up bebe'

The PET book is sorta focused on older children, but if you have a highly verbal kid, says it could start at 2.

Thanks! Even though he is only 19 months he is highly verbal. He already has 2-3 word sentences, so by age 2 I'm sure he will rank in the "highly verbal" category. I haven't heard of PET, but I know my library has Bringing up Bebe, so that one should be easy to add to my list.

NurtureShock (Bronson/Merryman)
I found it to be very fascinating, albeit less "do this, not that" than the other books on your list. Also applicable to a wide range of ages - there is a chapter about verbal development ("Why Alyssa Talks and Susie Doesn't" or something like that) which is more about mother/baby interactions -- and goes all the way to older kid/teen issues like lying, school relationships, etc.
