A Perfect book for a desert island!

A Perfect book for a desert island!

Although not very popular on my university, and actually, I would say the book which puts myself off reading as it’s very difficult I think I have found a perfect book for the desert island. Of course this book must be about programming and must last for many years to read. I’m telling you all guys, I have found one, actually many but like one – “The Art of Computer Programming” by Donald E. Knuth.
Now instead of intellectual chess evening I will probably dive into it as complicated things sometimes fascinate me.

Hey people, if you know any book similar to that one, or at least the one you believe is perfect for the one way trip, you can read it for a very long time and it’s about programming, please let me know. If I will gather enough posts I will create top 10 programming books for the desert island and post it on my blog! Thanks in advance!

    In my humble opinion, the most suitable book for a desert island would be a manual on how to survive in wilderness. “Raft construction for dummies” would be the next one on my list. Essays on programming? You’ve got to be kidding!
