As promised (months ago!) I've completely revamped my list of recommended books. I've always wanted this to be a "programmers bookshelf" listing the books that I think every software developer should read. So I removed some books, good ones but not crucial ones, and I added a bunch of books, and came up with 19 must-read books (plus 2 books if you want to become a programmer). Visit the new Book Reviews page.
You’re reading Joel on Software, stuffed with years and years of completely raving mad articles about software development, managing software teams, designing user interfaces, running successful software companies, and rubber duckies.
