I recently picked up O'Reilly's book 97 Things Every Programmer Should Know: Collective Wisdom from the Experts as it was an eBook Deal of the Day. Overall, I thought it a great book for a programmer just starting out in the field. It had quite a few things that I wish I'd known earlier. Probably because I took an unconventional route to programming.

One thing I found interesting was that many of the essays made reference to the suggestion from The Pragmatic Programmer: From Journeyman to Master to learn one new langauage every year. The suggestion by itself wasn't interesting. I think many people have heard it. The thing that intrigued me about it was that "The Pragmatic Programmer" is published by Addison-Wesley. I don't think I've seen such overt references to other publishers' books in a programming book before.

Kudos to you O'Reilly.
