I couldn't narrow it down to one, but since it hasn't been mentioned
already, Radia Perlman's Interconnections.  Her's is utterly fantastic
largely in part because she often explains why some things are the way
they are (how we got what we have) and sometimes why what we have isn't
always so great.  Other great books mentioned take a similar tack, they
go beyond what is in written specs.
