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)

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