Computer Science Faves

A Listmania! list by Steve McQueen (Boston, MA)
The list author says: "A list of books that helped me understand the concepts, data structure and syntax. Most of them are very basic, and written for the average reader. These probably won't be in you're required textbooks list for school, but could make a big difference in your understanding and passion for knowledge. Good luck :)"
