The Black Art of Video Game Console Design Reviews
Very helpful and informative. It's really more of a book that you use as a reference guide rather than something you read cover to cover, but I got this from the library and want to get through my other books as well. It also refreshed my memory on a number of mathematical ideas, so for this I am very grateful.
One of my favorite books as reference.
