    Zen in the Art of Archery by Eugen Herrigel comes to mind. It pre-dates Gallwey by about 30 years.

    Tom Hooten recommended we all read up on Neuro-Linguistic Programming. No specific book, but should be interesting. Notre Dame de Paris? Seriously, though, it is important as a musician that we remain balanced and involved in other uplifting activities.

    Zen in the Art of Archery is a book that Carmine Caruso used to recommend to his students. A few years ago, however, I read a critique of the book that said that Herrigel, because of language and cultural barriers misunderstood what was going on and got it all wrong.

    Guyton Text Book of Physiology, Chapter on Muscle; Chapter on Pulmonary Function... These will really be helpful to understand how these two important components work for us as trumpet players, and how we can make these concepts work for our own performance.
