Best sauce cookbook recommendations

I'm nearing the end of my time in culinary school, and I am looking to start building my library of cookbook/food literature staples. Right now I'm looking for the best sauce cookbooks that are out there. Does anyone have any favorites/classics that they can recommend?

Also, any other books that you might want to recommend would be greatly appreciated as well.

  1. My personal favourite is the classic James Peterson's "Sauces".
