Top 5 Programming books 📚 every Software Developer should read atleast once in his/her lifetime

These books have exponentially increased the knowledge of the readers. I have read some of the books of the given list. So let me start listing all the books one by one for you.

1. Clean Code by Robert Cecil Martin

This is one of my favorite programming books of all time. This book helps to understand the difference between good code and bad code. It explains what clean code really means. If you are not a very good coder, you should probably read this book.

2. Introduction to Algorithms

This book is one of the best books one can read in his/her lifetime. This book explains algorithms in a fun way. You will fall in love with algorithms and start making your own algorithms. This book has significantly increased my knowledge about algorithms and basic computing concepts. I definitely prefer this to anyone who wants to learn algorithms.

3. Computer Networking: A Top-down Approach by Jim Kurose

I could not stop myself from including this book. This book explains all the complex networking concepts in a simple way understood by all. You should probably go for this book.

4. Data Structures and Algorithms Made Easy

This is another great book for learning about algorithms. But this one offers a little more than just algorithms. It also explains data structures like stack, linked list, queue, etc. You also get a bonus of algorithmic puzzles in this bookm. So, I suggest you should definitely read this one.

5. Hands-On Machine Learning by Aurelien Geron

This book is a bonanza for all the ML engineers out there. This book explains everything you need to know to be a top class ML engineer. If you want to learn all the mathematics concepts required for ML, I suggest "Mathematics For Machine Learning".

So, this is all I could provide you guys. Thank you so much for reading this far.
