17 Essential Machine Learning books suggested by Michael I. Jordan from Berkeley. Not sure how real those suggestions are but nonetheless a nice list of books to reference, mainly probability, optimization, and statistical inference books.

People:
Someone passed me this link about stream graphs for visualizations. Very useful:

I recommend this book for helping with visualization. It keeps explanations generic enough that they can be applied for use with your chosen technologies, and helped me improve my own work enough that I've accidentally become a local go-to teacher for explanatory visualization.
I got most of my viz pet-peeves from there, as well, so there's that...
Also: The hard copies have had bad reviews for poor print quality on amazon, I suggest the e-book which also includes some helpful links
oh, hey! There's an explanation for the bad print quality
