This is one of those sets of books you put on your shelf so that people will recognize you as a Serious Programmer. I don't know anyone who has actually READ them, other than college students who were forced to do it. I actually used it as a reference once when I was writing a sort, but then I tossed my code and used library code, because when it comes down to it, who wants to write a sort by yourself???

I've read some other stuff Knuth has written, and he's actually a pretty good author. I wouldn't start with this, though, unless you're a masochist or you want someone to think that you're a Serious Programmer.
