The Dragon Book of course. Some also like Allen Holub's book, but you have
to wade through a thousand pages of errata to make any sense of it.
"Introduction to Compiler Construction" by Thomas Parsons makes a good intro
to the Dragon Book. There are also some books that are available online. I
don't have the URLs handy but check the FAQ.
The moderator's book on Lex and Yacc is also a good resource for using those
tools (and their free equivalents).
