Good books on strength training?

Does anyone have a good idea of any strength training and/or conditioning books? I'm looking for good reading material, as well as study material.

In my library so far:
Science and Practice of Strength Training- Vladimir Zatsiorsky
Practical Programming- Rip
SS

I've been trying to find a copy of Supertraining by Mel Siff, but to no avail. Does anybody have some good ideas on similar books? Less advanced reading is also good, as it can provide something fun to read while on the bus, train, at home, etc.

Wrestling Physical Conditioning Encyclopedia, by John Jesse is good.

Power to the People by Pavel Tsatsouline. Also the Russian Kettlebell Challenge and Enter the Kettlebell are great ones too.

If you're interested in Oly lifting Greg Everett's book is a good way to go for learning technique and how to program.
