The Industrial Engineer's Bible
By Juan B.
This is essentially the Industrial Engineer's bible. It covers all possible topics for an already diverse field. It's a huge book, the biggest I've ever owned, but I have a feeling I'll be using it for the rest of my life.

Extensive coverage of the subjet
By John A. Testelin
A reference book for Industrial Engineers with bibliography if you need to go deeper in a specific subject matter. Some historic of industrial organization is also given, and how evolved the vision of human beings at work. Even if the faculty explains how human beings should be treated at work, it's interesting to see the contrast with the reality in the world.
