Book recommendation

Posted by Neumann [send private reply] at May 07, 2003, 08:20:37 AM

I've got free-time this weekend and I thought it might be a good idea to do a bit of shopping. Last time I was in Quebec City, I discovered there was a Camelot Library there. It's a library specialised in computer books.

But I've got no book to buy right now. I don't really have any reason to cross the city to go to that library :(

Anyone knows of any computer science or programming book that would be worth the trip there?

Thank you for you suggestion, but no, I'm not really interrested in cryptography :/

But, this book:


is kind of thing I'm looking for.

Have you read the classic computer science work by Donald Knuth, The Art of Computer Programming? It has 3 volumes and he's working on volume 4. I wish he'd hurry up because he's getting really old and I don't want him to die before he finishes the monumental text.

No I haven't read it. I'm not sure my University Library owns them. I've seen them in a library but they don't come cheap :(

OooO money :(
