"Chess Opening Rep for black explained" is not the worse book those authors have produced, the equilvalent for white is really terrible, but there are better books covering similar ground. For example Eingorn's "A solid rep for black".
In no particular order...

There is a new book from quality chess on Petrosian's games "Python strategy" which is a translation of one of Petrosian's famous russian books apparantly. Hven't got it myself yet.
Sounds like a great read, thanks for the recommendation
Depends on where you're at in terms of progress.
My current top 10 would be:
- Silman's new endgame book.
- Silman's Reassess your chess.
- Pawn Power - Kmoch
- Chess for Tigers - Simon Webb
- Amateur's Mind - Silman
- Simple Chess - Michael Stean
- Complete Chess Strategy (Vols 1,2,3, not the condensed one!) - Pachman
- Mammoth book of World's Greatest Games
- Build up your chess Series - Arthur Yusupov
