An Interview with Brian Kernighan
M: Maybe you can help by being more concrete: can you recommend us some books, computer science books or otherwise, which you think have had a big influence on you?

K: The only computer science book I read more than once, that I actually pick up every few years and read parts of again, is The Mythical Man-Month by Fred Brooks, a great book. Partly it's very well written and partly the advice in it, even after more than 25 years, is still highly relevant. There are of course details that are different, some things we approach differently because we have more mechanization and more computer horse-power, but there's an enormous amount of good advice in that, so I recommend it highly. That's the only computer science book I can think of that you read for some combination of pleasure and insight.
