The Art of Unix Programming, by Eric S. Raymond

There are hundreds of thousands of distilled man-years of programming wisdom in this book. Some of it was already familiar to me from hard-won experience; some of it was new to me; some of it made me see aspects of my current project in a new light. It's the sort of book that puts words to things I know perfectly well but have never verbalized.

If you're a programmer, get a copy of this; it's a fun read, and I guarantee you'll learn something you didn't know before.
