The Art of Computer Programming (TAOCP for short) is a comprehensive monograph written by Donald Knuth. It was first published in 1968, and acclaimed as one of the best 12 academic monographs in Twentieth Century (Albert Einstein‘s theory of relativity is one of another 11) by American Scientist Magazine in 1999. The vast majority of computer programming knowledge of contemporary software developers came from this series of books.

The Art of Computer Programming analyzes and studies various programming algorithms in different application areas. Its theory and practice values got recognized by computer workers around the world. Again, Donald Knuth has made a deep research to the history of science development of related fields. Therefore, while this book introduces many research results, it also makes a good introduction to their historical origin and developing process. This characteristic is rare among worldwide scientific masterpieces. In a word, The Art of Computer Programming is one of the most respected reference books in the field of computer science.

Although The Art of Computer Programming is an absolute classic, AppNee advises non-genius-level programmers to just take it as a reference manual for use, and as the last choice. Because most of time you will find that its explanation to concepts is so deep that it’s more suitable for research purposes only.
