My first and only book on bjj at the moment. Nice and simple (relatively) for us n00bs. :D
What self defence?

What? Go take another look Zeddy. It has bearhug defences, arm grab defences, etc...

Ah actually you're right... I was thinking about knives for some bizarre reason.
I have to say though, the striking techniques demonstrated don't exactly rock my boat.
REALLY nice bearhug defence from behind though, I've noticed it makes people land on their head if they try to hang on. :D

These are my favorites:
Armbars by Neil Adams (or maybe it's called Armlocks)
Shimewaza by Kazhiwazaki (awesome)
Osaekomi by Kashiwazaki (very good as well, shows turtle breakdowns and guardpasses and sweeps)
(the above are all Masterclass Series judo books)
Passing the Guard by Tim Cartmell (shows the vast majority of guard passes in existence, it's quite good, and also counters to submissions from inside the guard)
Black Belt Techniques by JJ Machado
To be honest I don't think the Royler and Renzo's "Theory and Technique" book is that great unless you're an absolute beginner. I'd get JJ Machado's book instead.
Apparently JJ Machado just came out with a triangle choke book at bjjtapes.com. I'm waiting to see some reviews of it before I get it, but it SEEMS quite good, especially because the triangle is my favorite submission. I guess it has entries from basically every position and whatnot.

hard to find and cost me a small fortune:
Dynamic judo: throwing AND dynamic judo: Grappling.
Simply amazing books.

For Sport Judo, the best I've read is "The Judo Manual", by Reay and Hobbes. It's a British book. Very comprehensive.
The Judo book in the "Exploring Sports Series" published by WmC Brown Publishers is a good concise introduction to American Judo. The authors are Daeshik Kim and Kyung Sun Shin.
Of course, being Judo books, there's no discussion of no-gi grappling.
