The list author says: "All these books relate somehow to either computer engineering or computer science. Many of them are about theory, but some of them are purely about technical aspects. Some of them are old, some of them recently published. Some of them are completely relevant, others a bit quaint. Some of them are accessible, others are very obscure and hard to understand. I intentionally left out some obvious monuments such as Knuth's TAOCP, which don't need any more publicity, and often end up more being displayed in bookshelves than actually read"
"Very nice introduction to logic programming. The first two books in the series ("Little" and "Seasoned" schemmer) cover more standard ground and are not necessarily the best intros to functional programming, which is almost mainstream now anyways."
