Code Complete – Steve McConnell
The Pragmatic Programmer – Andrew Hunt, David Thomas

Beside all these nice books there are plenty of other books around which are great. For example books about programming languages, getting things done, presentations, etc…So grap a book and start to read 🙂 In my opinion good code quality starts with the developer. And a developer who is informed, up-to-date and knows what he is doing writes quality code!
