1. Computer Networks - Andrew S. Tanenbaum

Covers almost every aspect of networking in detail. It progresses in a very systematic manner to unfold all the concepts related to the 7 layers of the OSI and much more. .

2. Operating System Concepts - Silberschatz, Galvin

A great book on concurrency, synchronization, deadlock, Processes, threads and Inter-process communication, CPU scheduling, Memory management, File systems etc in an OS

3. Principles of Compiler Design - Aho , Ullman, Lam, Sethi

Beautifully written book on a complex subject of compilers. If you have trouble understanding Parsing, Code Optimization, Code Generation and all, I will definitely suggest you this book.




4. Digital Logic and Computer Design

Logic functions, Minimization, Design and synthesis of Combinational and Sequential circuits, all explained in this book.





5. Introduction to Algorithms, Third Edition - Thomas H. Cormen, Charles E. Leiserson, Ronald L. Rivest, and Clifford Stein

Introduction to Algorithms used in various kinds of languages. Good if you want to 'think' computer

.


6. Code Complete 2: A Practical Handbook of Software Construction - Steve McConnell

The book's focus is on writing better code. McConnell addresses a wide variety of topics including managing complexity, re-factoring, coding style, and writing good comments. A must read for every programmer who is serious about writing some good code.





7. Introduction to Languages and the Theory of Computation - John C Martin

This book is an introduction for undergraduates to the theory of computation. It emphasizes formal languages, automata and abstract models of computation, and computability. It also includes an introduction to computational complexity and NP-completeness.

8. The Mythical Man Month - Frederick P. Brooks

This book is an All Time Classic. First published in 1975. Technology has changed a lot since then, but the human aspect of the software industry still is the same. It describes many commonly occurring problems in large and mid-scale development projects and breaks them down.



9. Hacking Exposed: 5th Edition - Stuart McClure, Joel Scambray, George Kurtz

Having sold millions of copies throughout the world, the book is the number one best-selling computer security book. It's for those of you who want to delve deep into the 'Hacking and Security' aspect of computers.



10. The Little Black Book of Computer Viruses - Mark Ludwig

It goes very deep in a very specific topic of computer viruses. But I assure you this book is worth reading. I tried to read this during my 10th grade with a little experience of programming, I couldn't understand much of the assembly language. But the book fascinated me. I picked it up again after 4 years (when I was in a position to understand it better) and loved it. Mark Ludwig takes you into a deep dirty world of computer viruses. If you're a passionate coder you've got to read this.
