That's six :)

My top 5 list would be SRII main rules, Grimoire, Lone Star, Shadowtech,
and Rigger Black Book.

You'll notice the Lone Star book in there, which is because it gives the
GM a very good idea of how police forces in the 2050s work, and allows
you to judge their reaction to PCs' tendency to carry heavy weapons in
broad daylight much better. Getting a book like this right up front says
"Don't mess with the law, people" and should give you much less trouble
later on...
