it was amazing
Read in December, 2006

I haven't enjoyed a book this thoroughly in perhaps a decade. Everything you should have learned in computer school, but somehow missed. I've used at least a dozen techniques from this short masterwork (largely culled from HAKMEM -- devotees of that long-gone-but-not-forgotten first and greatest 'zine know this speaks to quality) in the year since I eagerly tore through my pre-ordered edition with almost sexual pleasure. Reading it is like a stroll down memory lane, except the road's been blasted broad and deep and out to the horizon.

Rediscover what it is to hack with delight. Hack in ecstasy; hack with joy; hack on!
