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.

Invaluable reference material for hard core software engineers everywhere. If you just a Javascript code-monkey though you won't find much that helps you in here it's very heavy on the theory.

My rating and comments are not about the content of the book but the workmanship of the book. I bought the set mostly for collection purpose so I demand more on the appearance. To my disappointment, despite of the new condition, there are multiple places where two adjacent pages are glued together in sizes of about 1 sq in and I have to carefully peel them apart, during which some content is lost.

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!
