      One of the first books, along with late Edsger Dijkstra's A Discipline of Programming, to point out the importance of proofs of program correctness. Unfortunately, as I read it I remembered various projects I have worked on, where the specification was at least as complicated as the code itself: maintaining it would have been even worse than maintaining the code.

      This book is really the gem of it. The deep insights, the mind boggling questions and the puzzles given in the book really helped a lot.
