I'm interested to know what are the critical reference texts you rely on for portfolio or risk management? I mean those texts that you come back to because they are chock full of insight and know-how. For example:

Bernd Scherer - Portfolio Construction and Risk Budgeting (2005)

Grinold and Kahn - Active Portfolio Management (2002)

Meucci - Risk and Asset Allocation (2010)

Glasserman - Monte Carlo Methods in Financial Engineering (2003)

John Cochrane - Asset Pricing (2005)

Gregory Connor - Portfolio Risk Analysis (2010)

Ruey Tsay - Analysis of Financial Time Series

Friedman - Elements of Statistical Learning

Geweke - Contemporary Bayesian Econometrics and Statistics

I think that one is also pretty well-known:

NcNeil, Frei, Embrechts - Quantitative Risk Management

Paul Wilmott - Frequently Asked Questions in Quantitative Finance
