The bible of all fundamental algorithms and the work that taught many of todayrs"s software developers most of what they know about computer programming. -Byte, September 1995 Countless readers have spoken about the profound personal influence of Knuthrs"s work. Scientists have marveled at the beauty and elegance of his analysis, while ordinary programmers have successfully applied his "cookbook" solutions to their day-to-day problems. All have admired Knuth for the breadth, clarity, accuracy, and good humor found in his books. I canrs"t begin to tell you how many pleasurable hours of study and recreation they have afforded me! I have pored over them in cars, restaurants, at work, at homehellip; and even at a Little League game when my son wasnrs"t in the line-up. -Charles Long Primarily written as a reference, some people have nevertheless found it possible and interesting to read each volume from beginning to end. A programmer in China even compared the experience to reading a poem.

Itrs"s always a pleasure when a problem is hard enough that you have to get the Knuths off the shelf. I find that merely opening one has a very useful terrorizing effect on computers. -Jonathan Laventhol In describing the new fourth volume, one reviewer listed the qualities that distinguish all of Knuthrs"s work.
