A Reading List for the Rest of Us

Originally created on August 27, 1999

This list was prompted by recurring discussions on various mailing lists about what constitutes good reading, and/or what books various folk recommend. O'Reilly titles are understood -- This list encompasses everything else. There will still be O'Reilly titles mentioned below -- Quality tells. Comments grouped only as to original author. No implications from ordering, or even color choices. Spelling errors, political statements, and forgotten author names all corrected free of charge.

Possible types below:

  1. computer hardware and software titles
  2. generally useful technical titles
  3. spend some quality time here
  4. specifically science fiction, or fantasy (but it's still quality)
