One of the genres I enjoy most reading is books about software history. Books that tell you real stories and experiences from software companies which relate how they got into what they are or how they released that product that you always have used.
I defined them as teenage nostalgia books. Books that maybe describe how those games in which you spent countless hours when made. Masters of Doom and The Making of Prince of Persia are gold if you ask me. But there must be more! Making it Big in Software is a great set of essays about well known software leaders who narrate their stories.
So, I'm asking this community. What books about software history do you recommend for reading?
