I would suggest "Nonviolent Communication: A Language of Life" by Marshall B. Rosenberg. It didn't make code better but it made me code better at work. In this context - actually, in most contexts - it basically changed my life for the better.

As for topics closer to code, there are some math domains that really made me think way better as a developer. Linear Algebra is one of those, and Boldrini's and Elon Lima's books really taught me well, but alas they're probably not available in English. Probability was also very important, and Meyer's book was very interesting.
