Welcome to my reading list.  This is a work in progress.  As I think of books to recommend, I'll add them.  Clicking the book image will take you to Amazon.com where you can find out more about it.

Programming

If you want a single programming skill that will stand you in good stead for the maximum number of programming chores you may face, you should probably know Perl. It has an enormous user base, with tons of freely available modules that probably already do what you need done.
There are a bazillion books on C++, but only one that can be considered the master reference by the progenitor of the language itself. No matter what other C++ books you have, have this one.
Once you've been programming for a while, this book will help you with the mindset needed to take you to a higher level. Good reading for any professional who spends any time thinking about the philosopy of his trade.

Life in General

Start here. Finish here. No other book on Life in General will make as much difference in your life in general as this one. And for some good commentary, try this.
