Holy bibles of discretionary global macro (or investing in general)?

So I was recently reading one of Howard Mark's memos on value investing for curiosity sake and I see that he listed both Graham's Intelligent Investor and Securities Analysis as bibles for value investors. This got me to think about the bibles for discretionary global macro, which I can't think of anything else besides the alchemy of finance.

So besides George Soros' Alchemy of Finance, what other books are considered a bible for global macro investing?

And if you follow an investment approach other than global macro or value investing (ex: Ed Thorpe's stuff for quant), what are the bibles for your craft?
