Rob Conery's book enlightens self-taught programmers about overlooked concepts and techniques. The core ethos of The Imposter's Handbook is: Be an explorer. Push the edges. Find out what's possible. Dig deeper. Don't stop learning. For these reasons, and many more for imposters and non-imposters stuck in their ways, get this book!
