A System for Remembering What you Read
I’d argue that a better approach is to build a latticework of mental models. That is, acquire core multi-disciplinary knowledge and use that as your foundation. This is the best investment because this stuff doesn’t change, or if it does, it changes really slowly. This knowledge becomes your foundation.

Aho/Ullman Foundations of Computer Science
This book has been taken out of print by W. H. Freeman. You are welcome to use it if you like. We believed in 1992 it was the way to introduce theory in Computer Science, and we believe that today.

The Benjamin Franklin Method of Reading Programming Books | Path-Sensitive
Read your programming book as normal. When you get to a code sample, read it over

Then close the book.

Then try to type it up.

Simple, right? But try it and watch as you’re forced to learn some of the structure of the code.

It’s a lot like the way you may have already been doing it, just with more learning.

Cybersecurity Canon
To identify a list of must-read books for all cyber security practitioners -- be they from industry, government or academia -- where the content is timeless, genuinely represents an aspect of the community that is true and precise, reflects the highest quality and that, if not read, will leave a hole in the cyber security professional’s education that will make the practitioner incomplete.

Modern Perl, by chromatic - Onyx Neon Press
Modern Perl is one way to describe how experienced and effective Perl 5 programmers work. They use language idioms. They take advantage of the CPAN. They're recognizably Perlish, and they show good taste and craftsmanship and a full understanding of Perl.

You can learn this too, whether you've dabbled with Perl for a decade or someone just handed you this book and said "Fix this code by Friday.

At the Heart of the Crash | The New York Review of Books

Dissent Magazine
But Zinn's big book is quite unworthy of such fame and influence. A People's History is bad history, albeit gilded with virtuous intentions. Zinn reduces the past to a Manichean fable and makes no serious attempt to address the biggest question a leftist can ask about U.S. history: why have most Americans accepted the legitimacy of the capitalist republic in which they live?

Spaceship Jesus Will Come Back and Whisk Us Away < Killing the Buddha
Jerry Jenkins and Tim LaHaye’s Left Behind series of sixteen novels (so far!) represents everything that is most deranged about religion. If I had to choose companions to take my chances with in a lifeboat, and the choice boiled down to picking Tim LaHaye, Jerry Jenkins, or Christopher Hitchens, I’d pick Hitchens in a heartbeat. At least he wouldn’t try to sink our boat so that Jesus would come back sooner. He might even bring along a case of wine.
