I have a definite favorite:

"Raising Your Spirited Child Rev Ed: A Guide for Parents Whose Child Is More Intense, Sensitive, Perceptive, Persistent, and Energetic"

by Mary Sheedy Kurcinka

I like this book because the ideas and concepts Kurcinka discusses can be used for virtually any child. The author discusses tempermant traits, has the reader evaluate their child(ren) on a spectrum of issues such as intensity, persistence, and sensitivity, and then offers practical, easy to implement advice.

Her emphasis is on reframing the child's behavior issues from negative (stubborn) to positive(persistant) while working to correct and manage negative behaviors.

I also appreciate her discussion of the ways parents who have a difficult "fit" between their personalities and their child(ren)'s can manage everyone's behavior to lessen strife in the home.

Probably my number one book is The Happiest Baby on the Block by Harvey Karp, M.D. Besides being a good resource in general, I also find its reassuring to new parents. Easy to read and practical help.

Although the one book I have probably referenced most often is Super Baby Food by Ruth Yaron. Great, big,purple, book on feeding babies and young children.

No question - Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Baby. Solved my oldest charge's sleep problems when he was an infant and trained us so that we had zero problems with babies 2 and 3.
I have recommended this book to every nanny I know and bought it for my daughter when she was pregnant. Love this book!
