Adult Reference Books for Parents, Teachers, Librarians, etc.

I was searching Amazon, and I decided to compile this list. I figured that if I was interested, other people might be as well. These books could be sitting on your local library shelves just waiting for you to 'discover' them. My library has a great section the Parent-Teacher section. Most of these have the dewey number of 372. something or 649. something. A few of these I've looked through. Most are just ones I've read about on Amazon. So I can't "testify" about any of them too much. But I know this...if I had the time...and the resources...I'd love to read all of them at some point.
