10 Programming Books You Absolutely Want Within Easy Reach

To make this list, a book must be on my “close” shelf, and must

  • Be useful today
  • Be incredibly well written

I have a second list coming, 10 Programming Books You Absolutely Must Read – those are not on my easy reach shelf, but are equally important.

Note also that many of these are not yet released; they represent the updated versions of books I keep close at hand…

Full Disclosure: As an author, I try hard neither to criticize competing books nor to hype mine.  You’ll find just one (out of a couple dozen) of my books in this list. Finally, these links are through my private Amazon Associates account, and thus I gain a few pennies if you buy them (more if they are mine).

  14. Here are some insightful quotes I like… Lemme know if
    you like them:

    “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to development.”

    “I, at any rate, am convinced that He (God) doesn’t throw dice.”

    “The significant matter is not to stop questioning; fascination has its own reason for existing.”

    “Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.”

    “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”

    “Falling in love isn’t at all the most ignorant thing that people do — but gravitation cannot be held responsible for it.”

    “The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science.”

    “Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.”

    “Strive not to become a man of success, but rather attempt to become a man of value”

  27. Due to the recent concern for the environmental impact of conventional heating and energy sources, many people are turning to solar power for their homes.
    In the past, when you needed repairs carried out to your roof, it was
    a case of going through the phone book and hoping you
    would, with luck, find a quality and affordable contractor.
    You should let the stuff sit and dry some before
    applying the silver coating to the roof.

  28. Try asking any of them what they mean by “weird,” and their
    most “intelligent” answer, atop all the murderously malicious slander, would be “Well, you know–weird. , with the healing of Rome’s mortal head wound, by Justinian, to 1814 A. And, indeed, what more cleverly self-disguising manner for the actual antichrist to re-emerge, than in the form of the one who replaces or gets rid of the antichrist, just as Hitler had been similarly deposed.

  29. Good day I am so grateful I found your site, I really found you by accident, while I was researching on Google for something else,
