Recommended Reading

so someone asked me to recommend a book on unix programming a little while back... as a result, here we have my 'recommended reading for computer geeks' list.

anyway, i'm sure a ton more will pop into my head as soon as i post this, but that's a good start...


  1. I'd have to add the Effective C++, More Effective C++ published by Addison-Wesley. but i'm too lazy to find a page and link it. but they are good books.

  2. Also, Modern C++ Design by Andrei Alexandrescu is excellent. if you get to use a compiler that supports the standard, the notions laid forth in that book are wonderful.

  3. As for Win32, also Programming Windows with Win32 by Petzold, Programming Windows with MFC by Prosise are excellent books. Depending on what you're using, Inside ATL and Essential .NET are also excellent.
