Here I recommend some of the Greatest Photography Books (especially handy for Street & Documentary Photographers). Most of these I personally possess, have read and Enjoyed. The rest are Good ones as well and sooner or later would end up on my bookshelf.

Note: I do not put the descriptions by intend as you could not be dissapointed with any of these, especially if you just want a Good Book and have no extra expectations.

Note: There are some other Great Photography books by extraordinary photographers (e.g. Richard Avedon, Dan Winters, Man Ray, Sally Man, Helen Levitt, Friedlander, Jeff Mermelstein etc.) which were not mentioned here.
I didn't want to measure the greatness of books based just on the photographer authority itself.
