Hi Everyone,

I'm embarking on a, hopefully fun, project to create lists of books for 
various vintage computer related projects.

The first one is as broad as them come:

What five books would you recommend to someone completely new to the hobby?


Let us assume the people are adults (children's books will be a separate 
discussion). Books can be currently published or vintage.. physical or 
digital... Let us also assume the readers have a basic understanding of 
how to use a standard (say Windows 10 or macOS) computer.

If possible, please include why you think the book should be on the 
list. I'll be buying (the ones I do not own) the most (quantity and 
quality) recommended books, reading them, compiling my recommendation 
for the final list, posting it here for people to tear apart, and then 
ultimately posting it publicly in an appropriate space. Please post to 
the list so that other people can see your recommendations (and maybe 
even find a book they want to buy!).

Oh, and feel free to recommend even just one book. The more information 
the merrier!
