Masters of Doom, it's a fun, insightful, and inspiring read about the creators of Doom and Quake.
My favorite quote:

"In the information age, the barriers just aren’t there. The barriers are self-imposed. If you want to set off and go develop some grand new thing, you don’t need millions of dollars of capitalization. You need enough pizza and Diet Coke to stick in your refrigerator, a cheap PC to work on, and the dedication to go through with it. We slept on floors. We waded across rivers."
-John Carmack, Masters of Doom

 

This is so awesome. Inspiring too.
