Engineer-turned-recruiter Steven Levy shares his reading list for IT pros who want to learn better business and communication skills -- and boost their careers in the process.

Whether you're a reluctant reader or a voracious one, a digital native or a hardcover-and-paperback devotee, choosing the right reading list can give your IT career a beneficial boost, especially if you've got ambitions. Even if you don't have "CIO" or a comparable title in your sights, IT pros are increasingly called upon to add business chops to their technical skill sets -- or get left behind.
