The Best Software Writing
Computer science literature is often uninteresting, un-animated, and unreadable. The Best Software Writing goes to show that a technical author can be creative and informative at the same time. Is there any reason why a definition of a concept cannot be humorous? Is there a set of rules that do not allow a manual to have a personality? Who wants to read an 800 page book made of drowning terms, and absolutely no hint of imagination? If you're going to write something of a technical nature, at least do your audience a favor and make your work readable.
