From someone who works on Wall Street, The Intelligent Investor is a must.

Preach on.  Still the best book on investing in individual stocks ever written. 

Even if you're an indexer, there's a great deal to be said for what Graham had to say on how to approach investing - the idea of being your own worst enemy, and that "investing is at its most intelligent when it is most businesslike".  Wish I could've heard him teach.

All of the mentioned books are really recommendable.
Additionally, newbies should read "Play Smart in the Stock Market"

For a great non-technical book with a historical flavor, I remember reading "The Devil Take the Hindmost" by Edward Chancellor. It has been a while since I read it, but it covers the history of investing over the past 400 (+/-) years. You can gain a ton of practical investing knowledge from it while enjoying the read.

On the introductory technical side of things, I enjoyed "Fundamentals of Contemporary Financial Management"  by Moyer, which you can pick up on amazon for a penny. This introduced and covered the (simple) mathematics behind the core principles of finance (in a text book format).

Just my 0.02, hope it helps
