The Pragmatic Programmer: From Journeyman to Master
David Thomas, Andrew Hunt
I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings - Maya Angelou And this is the peril of not knowing anything about a book. Maya Angelou's autobiography starts out as a pleasant but fairly conventional memoir, and then suddenly blammo, an extremely traumatic thing happens, with very little warning, that I was in no way prepared for.

Which is probably just what her actual life was like, except not a book, so there's that.

Anyway, if you haven't read this yet, you now know more than I did. Brace yourself.

Aside from the extreme trauma: this is an absolutely stunning book. What a writer Angelou is! Screamingly perceptive, beautiful, incisive.

This book is some shit right here.
