The Top 9 1/2 in a Hacker’s Bookshelf
GrokCode’s Jess Johnson writes (very well!):
“Every hacker should have a good solid dead tree library to draw ideas from and use as reference material. This list has a bit of everything – textbooks you will encounter at top tier computer science universities, books giving insight into the industry, and references you shouldn’t be caught without. It is a list of hackers’ classics.“
I can officially say I would willingly read three of those, and can open one right now!
