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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece of Programming Knowledge 9 February 2016
By William P Ross - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I read this book cover to cover which took me over 3 months, and I was extremely impressed with this collection. Knuth turns computer programming into an art form as the title suggests.

There is a lot of history which Knuth makes interesting by stating which algorithms were remarkable discoveries and which were logical extensions of other algorithms. The analysis is much more in depth than other authors especially with regards to run time performance.

At the end of each section there are tons of problems to solve, and full answers are in the back. I especially liked how each problem has a rating on its difficulty. For example, a problem with a rating 10 is easy, rating 25 might take an hour... up to rating 50 which is an unsolved problem in computer science.

Volume one starts with the first 150 pages being math related to computer science. Then the assembly language is introduced which many of the algorithms are written in. The choice for assembly was made so as to not commit to one specific language's paradigm.

Volume two gets into the heart of the algorithms. A lot of interesting things about floating point calculations, and prime number discovery. My overall understanding of computer science improved a ton here.

Volume three was my personal favorite. Knuth explains searching and sorting very well. The evolution of the "trie" data structure was impressive. At first he shows a way to make a trie in a way I had never seen before. Then he showed another way, and finally he got to the modern way I had seen. With this knowledge, I understood how the trie was discovered, how it was improved, and then improved again. Every other algorithm book just shows the modern trie without explaining how they got there.

Volume four is heavy on math again with a lot about permutations and combinatorics. This was the most difficult of the books I felt but also rewarding.

Knuth's writing is excellent. Each sentence is clear and communicates in a way that makes computer history interesting.

The box set itself is beautiful and the paper is high quality. I wish I could give more than 5 stars for the review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every Developer Should Read These 4 June 2013
By Michael - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Dr. Yale Patt once told me that anybody who reads through these volumes and completes all the exercises will become an incredibly valuable software developer, and thinker in general. After spending a few weeks with these books, I realize that he was correct, although completing all of the exercises may be impossible in any reasonable amount of time.

Do yourself a favor. Buy these books, read through them, and try to complete the exercises. I promise you will become a significantly better programmer, regardless of your current skill level.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for advanced programmers 8 February 2016
By F. Khan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a great set that should be on every programmer's bookshelf. They look beautiful in the boxed set with high quality covers as well as pages. Bill Gates once said about these books: "If somebody is so brash that they think they know everything, Knuth will help them understand that the world is deep and complicated." I think that they are great for reference. Now that I am no longer in an academic setting, I think that I can enjoy expanding my knowledge base slowly moving through this content. For any programmer looking to enhance their knowledge base, this is the perfect book set to invest in.

i thought i can rush the first chapter because i think im know everything about basic math like summation etc. i was totally wrong it took me 3 days to skim through the first chapter now understand why ppl call this book bible
update: This book makes me doubt my 5 years' computer science education, the stuff I have learned before is like joke.

5.0 out of 5 stars the humor has been excellent so far 12 March 2017
By Arindam Mandal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am just 25% into the first volume. So far it has been beyond my expectation, and i believe that the remainder of it will surpass even my newly formed expectations. the humor has been excellent so far ... asking one to prove fermat's last theorem as an exercise in the introduction itself. nothing can probably surpass this !!!
