Just got the latest new book from co-father-of-C, Brian Kerningham. It's called Practice of Programming. I imagine it'll eventually be called "The Wiener Dog Book", as computer books tend to be named after the pictures on the cover, like The Dragon Book or The Red Book. I'm about 1/3 of the way into it, and I'm mixed. The first chapter was priceless, showing the value of good variable naming and coherent programming style (mirroring, for the most part, my own bias for naming and style). Unfortunately, the book seems to be devolving into a light text on algorithms. While the discussion of the value of a good choice of algorithm and order notation was worthwhile, he's spending way too much time in the specifics. For example, he spent about eight pages describing how quicksort works, which is really out of place for a book about general programming practice. For algorithms, you could do much better with a detailed book like Sedgewick's.
I'll give a full report on the book later. I'm hoping the sudden chance in scope is just a minor bump and not a sign of schizophrenia on the part of the author.
