Mesteren selv fortæller hvordan man bør programmere. Heldigvis har folkene bag Mathematica, Maple og lignende programmer læst på lektien, så vi andre ikke behøver være helt så skarpe.

Difficult, instructive, intelligent, amusing and brain-numbing - all rolled-in-to-one in this classic of CS. Buy it, read a page at a sitting and savor it - this is a book read over 5 years.

I used this volume less than Fundamental Algorithms, and Sorting and Searching, but it still saved me hours and hours of work, more than once.
