Definitive books for newcomers and interested laymen?
May 16, 2014 8:02 PM Subscribe
I am in a "Learn ALL the things!" mode, and also in the mood to collect books to put on shelves. I am looking for clear-consensus best introductory guides to, well, everything. I've just finished "Bobby Fisher Teaches Chess" and am now knee deep into K&R's "C Programming Language", and have Mark Rippetoe's "Starting Strength" and "Zinn and the Art of Bicycle Maintenance" under my belt.
Which introductory guides to your areas of interest are the most informative and accurate and engaging?
