Advise fundamental reading material to the administrator?

from what has already been read or written to the wishlist:
Literature for preparing for LPIC1 - Linux is very well explained without reference to the distribution. I read it first in Russian, then in English.
Literature on preparation for LPIC2 is in the process, infa is deeper, a lot of things affect practice.
Olifer "Computer Networks" - sets the brain well and puts everything on the shelves. An excellent option for preparing for CCNA, without being tied to CISCO.
Literature on preparation for CCNA (and then for CCNP) - so far only in the plans, useful + certification is planned.
Three books by E. Tanenbaum - "Computer Networks", "Modern Operating Systems", "Computer Architecture" - a fundamental reading for understanding what is happening here to the smallest detail. But not yet read.

What would you add? What would you criticize?
I would be extremely happy if the year of publication is 2012 and only in English - I will buy it on Amazon.

I would additionally recommend Thomas Limoncelli “System and Network Administration. A practical guide” and about time management. It is certainly not fundamental, but very useful.

TCP/IP Illustrated

My supervisor gave me the “Architecture and security of Linux systems” to read. Unfortunately, for some reason there is not a word about it on the Internet, although the book is wonderful. Everything is detailed and with examples. True, in order to delve into it, you need to sit next to computer and check everything written, otherwise such a volume of information cannot be assimilated

"Advanced Programming in the UNIX" www.amazon.com/Programming-Environment-Addison-Wesley-Professional-Computing/dp/0201433079 very simple English, best to read and try right away.

Since it is not specified exactly what type of reading matter, I will advise: man. Fundamentally.

Although Unix. Development of network applications ”(W.R. Stevens, B. Fenner, E.M. Rudoff) is more focused on programmers, but, IMHO, the network piece of the TCP / IP stack is described so well that anyone who is concerned with the work should read the book with a network. In addition, I think that Stevens is so cool that even the translation could not spoil his work (unfortunately, the quality of the translation into Russian is often not very good).
Well, the already mentioned JuniorJack -th “UNIX. Professional Programming ”Stevens W.R., Rago S.A. is also worth reading, although for the administrator this is less relevant.
UNIX. Interaction of processes ”Stevens W.R., at least diagonally, it would be worth looking at, it is very easy to read. Again, the bias is more in programming.
"The Linux Kernel" by D. Bovet, M. Cesati will allow you to get acquainted with the work of the linux kernel in more detail. IMHO, optional for the administrator.
I believe that this list gives a very good fundamental picture of the operation of the system as a whole, which allows us to understand the practical problems that arise. Specific implementation details can already be googled (because there is usually nothing to catch in RuNet) in the course of practical work.

+ to ITIL (although most often enough basic literature on ITSM, written in an accessible language). The concept of ITSM is very useful if you do not have a manager who is competent enough in terms of management.
www.amazon.com/ITIL-Lifecycle-Suite-2011-Edition/dp/0113313233/ - a lot, difficult, expensive, fundamental. You can find more general books if you are not going to get certified (if you do get certified, then these 5 volumes will require more additions for a fairly decent amount, plus full immersion).
