Discussion on: Read the source material... eventually

Absolutely agree. I remember being fresh out of college and picking up all the canonical books and trying to make my way through them. It just didn't stick as well as it should have and, worse, the feeling of not understanding everything made me doubt myself. Aren't these books for good programmers?

Years later, I'm doing the same thing: going back and reading the books people always say you should read. Now I've dealt with situations where the concepts would have been useful and it's been great.
