I absolutely love the books from “The Pragmatic Programmers”. They are really well-written, and the cool thing is, you can get them as DRM-free PDFs. And the even cooler thing is, you can buy and read them while they are still being written!

How great is that?

Below is a screenshot of my Pragmatic Bookshelf. I can recommend all of the books except iPhone SDK Development (only because I haven’t read it yet).

And if you buy the ebook version (which I usually do, as I don’t like hard copy books for technical literature) and they correct any errors in the book, you get a free update.

Sometimes they even add further chapters, and in the case of Hello Android, they updated the whole book for a completely new SDK release!
