just a quick question to all of you: What is the best written programming book you know? I don't care what language or technology it is about. I'm looking for a book on the topic of programming that has the atmosphere of a good novel and really sucks you into it. A book you take with you everywhere b/c you want to know how it continues ; ).
The thing is that most programming books that I know are not like this. They usually tend to either be way to simple and stupid throughout the entire book. Or way too intimidating and difficult so that you need to re-read every page from the first chapter to get it. Or some of them just loose their bite after 150-200 pages and you find yourself skipping lots of pages.
So if you have any suggestions on *must-read* programming books please let me know. An exception would be books that are written about programming and team work itself and don't really contain code examples.
thanks a lot,
