Bought “The Mythical Man-Month”

I have been meaning to by "The Mythical Man-Month" by Frederick P Brooks for some time now. Yesterday, I read a post on how to be a better programmer which recommended this book. That was the tipping point for me. Today, I went to Ernakulam and bought this book.

I bought it from "Computer Book Store" near North Bus stop. A more famous book store is 'Mindstorm books' - also at North. But the price quoted there was a bit higher. I also got a quote on the other books I wanted to buy...

Books to buy

The Pragmatic Programmer : From Journeyman to Master

by Andrew Hunt and David Thomas

This book is not found anywhere in Ernakulam - I went to five different major bookstores - and no one have even heard of this book. I guess my only option is to get this book from Amazon or Ebay or something.

Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs(aka SICP)

By Harold Abelson and Gerald Jay Sussman

Another book I couldn't find. Fortunately, this is available free of cost on the net.
