    Long Lasting Relevance

    I first read this book when it was published, and I was just graduating college. Since then I've built software in C, C++, and Pascal. I've built hardware with verilog and VHDL. I've built testbenches with Vera and E. This is the most relevant book, and I still have it on my shelf to loan to new graduates. It helps you to understand all of the most important concepts for developing hardware and software with any language imaginable. With all this, you would think that it is hard to read. But this book is written in an enjoyable style, a rare quality in engineering of any kind. Read it!

    Your First Software Development Book

    Once you've learned the basics of programming, this is the book to get to fill out the 'big picture' of large development projects, AND help with all the little details. From algorithms to coding standards, project estimates to quality assurance, this book clearly overviews the field, and points you in the right direction for more detail. I lent my copy to a friend, so now I'm ordering TWO more.

    Best software development book

    Easily the best book on software development. The information is described clearly and the examples highlight the message. Many supporting references validate the author's observations and conclusions.

    A pretty good set of guidelines

    I didn't agree with everything in this book, but I did agree with most of it. It's a pretty good set of guidelines and just relates the things that should be common knowledge among programmers but unfortunately obviously ain't. We've settled a lot of arguments with this book. Some have accused it of a Microsoft orientation, but I haven't seen that. I wish schools would start their computer-science track with a flowcharting class, then a class based on this book.

    Required reading for all programmers

    I have found that no matter what programming language you use, this book provides many indespensible tools for building rock solid software. I have made it a habit to revisit this book at least once every 18 months to remind myself of the many ideals to software construction, and to gauge my working progress toward better code construction.

    An Essential Purchase

    This book will make you a better programmer, regardless of your level of experience, target operating system or language. It's that good.

    Software Construction in 800+ pages

    This book gave me an idea of software engineering as a whole. There are many advice which I believe would be very useful to any computer programmer.

    The Time Machine

    I think the maddening wordiness, problematic with most books I read, wastes time and productivity outside the classroom. The purchaser has to highlight 3,500 pages of otherwise classic books, including McConnell and Nielsen, into 1,000 pages of system and program design fundamentals- essential for every professional.
