About the Author

Donald E. Knuth is known throughout the world for his pioneering work on algorithms and programming techniques, for his invention of the TEX and METAFONT systems for computer typesetting, and for his prolific and influential writing (26 books, 161 papers). Professor Emeritus of The Art of Computer Programming at Stanford University, he currently devotes full time to the completion of his seminal multivolume series on classical computer science, begun in 1962 when he was a graduate student at California Institute of Technology. Professor Knuth is the recipient of numerous awards and honors, including the ACM Turing Award, the Medal of Science presented by President Carter, the AMS Steele Prize for expository writing, and, in November, 1996, the prestigious Kyoto Prize for advanced technology. He lives on the Stanford campus with his wife, Jill.

I had this item on my wish list for some time to add to my book shelf. Anyone interested in computer algorithms should seriously consider Donald Knuth's classic multi-volume work as an authoritative source of useful and illuminating guidance. Computer programming truly is an art.

I used Donald Knuth's "Art of Computer Programming" encyclopedic volumes years ago when I was in grad school, and they were great! I always wanted to buy a set for myself back then, but couldn't afford it. When I stumbled across the latest revision of these volumes on Amazon at a great price, I snapped them up, if nothing else for nostalgic reasons.... but they're still great to read!

First of all, I am not a programmer, but by far a hobbyist or enthusiast – if really want to link up to Windows programming. Reading all these definitely going to be a taxing and yet fascinating tasks – even without any of the academic pressure. I've certainly got no intend to send a copy of my résumé to Mr. Bill. I am glad to have a set of this.
