Books on LEGO Mindstorms NXT, "WHERE DOES ONE BEGIN?".

I'd like to pick-up a few books for the robotics program at my teams school but which ones, by which author(s), which ones are well written and easier to understand, etc?? I was going to list out all of the authors that have books on the subject until I realized that there weren't just 6-8 authors, there's actually 30+ and I stopped counting after a while.

Now I understand that there's books on Programming (e.g. NXT-G, RobotC, LabView), Strategies, Building Robots for fun, and more and more so what would consider "MUST HAVE" books for someone who coaches FLL teams and wants to help improve themselves and the students? I think it narrows it down somewhat to Programming in NXT-G but which 1-2 books are the best and Robot Building techniques but which 1-2 books are the best in this area? Are there any other areas that are covered by all these books that are good to have?

So, if I were to build up a small section in the school's library for LEGO Mindstorms NXT books what would you recommend starting out with?

Sorry to ramble on but thanks for any input you may have.
