A pearl for software developers,
This review is from: Programming Pearls (ACM Press) (Paperback)
In a time where so many job descriptions contains long lists of company names, version numbers, certificates it is refreshing to pick up a book like this and get back to basis. Software development is not about which language you are using and which version but about solving problems - in a efficient way. If you agree with this, then this book is exactly for you.
It goes through a list of generic problems, looking at data structures and algorithms which to use and why.
I am sending this out as birthday presents, and I will read this book again soon.
