If the new coin collector can only have 3 books, what should they be (and an optional why)?

This can be one of the three above or a fourth book.  What is a book that you have kept going back to over and over through you years of collecting?

Assuming US Coins

The 2007 Red Book by Yeoman for one.

Very comprehensive review of almost all US Coins.

Any other opinions on good books?  I inherited a TON of coins from my father, a lot of which are old(er) US coins but most are foreign - around 40 countries worth.  They are sitting in cigar boxes and I'd like to go through them, so I'm assuming I'll have to invest in a couple general books but have to go to the library for books on all the foreign countries...  Is there a good coin book series/brand that anyone can recommend?

Thanks!
