Essential reading for your industry

Prospect in 

What books do you recommend for someone who wants to have a basic understanding of what you do/how your industry or subsector works/what your job is "all about" and why? Is there any amount of technical knowledge pertaining to your specific industry that would be useful for a generalist/industry outsider (I'll just leave "useful" undefined for now)? Looking for reading that will really broaden how I think about business and make me better at spotting or evaluating opportunities when they arise. Hope that's not too vague, all recs welcome.
