re: 29 Must Read Books For Programmers VIEW POST


Thanks for the list, there are some titles that are new to me.

And I would like to add one title that I think is missing. It is my all time favourite book; "Design of everyday things" by Don Norman. The first draft is from 1988 but a second revised draft is from 2013. The book describes how items can be designed so that the user naturally uses it the way it was meant to be used. The cover of the book illustrates that in a brilliant way. The book teaches you to look with different eyes to things around you. It certainly changed my way of looking at things.

Yes. Thanks for the suggestion. It is a good book. I've read the original but want aware there's an updated version.

I chose the books by Steve Krug instead because they are more directly applicable to our work as programmers.
