The Art of Computer Programming Boxed Set- 5 Stars!
Dr Knuth masterfully and beautifully typesets his "piece de resistance"- the art of computer programming. As of 2010 these books came in three- or four-volume Book sets. Below is a list of the volumes and most current edition: * Volume 1-Fundamental Algorithms (Third Edition) * Volume 2- Seminumerical Algorithms (Third Edition) * Volume 3- Sorting and Searching (Second Edition) * Volume 4A- Combinatorial Algorithms ( Fasicles 0-4 or the Volume 4 Hardback) Although the 3- and 4- book boxed sets demand a pricey MSRP of $200 and $250 respectively, the new box sets can be still be considered a good investment. After watching on ebay for some weeks, I bought all 4 Volumes for barely $110. Ebay saved me more than 50%. If you don't mind digging through the errata on Kunth's website (Goole "TAOCP errata"), you can pick up the older editions for a nominal cost savings.
THE Definitive Work on Programming
Dr. Knuth's Art of Computer Programming is THE definitive books on the art and science of programming. There is a little secret that experienced programmers discover: languages are irrelevent- algorithms are everything. In the three volume set, The Art of Computer Programming, Knuth explores Fundamental Algorithms(V1), Semi-Numerical Algorithms(V2) and Sorting & Searching(V3). Recently Knuth has added more volumes to this set but these three are timeless classics. It does not matter what kind of programmer you are, Dr. Knuth can teach you more moves than Dr. J.
