The catholic church does exactly what Browns's novel accuses them of doing!
I highly recommend Dan Brown's Angels and Demons ... and The Rule of Four
you can access that thread HERE .

Well The Rule of Four is kind of like the Da Vinci Code in many respects.
But where the Da Vinci Code focuses on the biblical realities between the church and the Holy Grail, The Rule of Four focuses more on the academic side of the relationship the church had with scholars and members of secret societies.
The Holy Grail in this book refers to actual academic works that was banned by the church.
Works by Michaelangelo, Donatello, Gerdi that to this day have actually never seen the light of day... (literally)

Okay all of you who like compilers and shit need to read The Pragmatic Programmer. It's the best book out there. Doesn't teach you a particular language or any techniques for coding really, it's more a book that gets you to critically analyze how you develop software, and hopefully improve on it. Fantastic book.

Read 1984 by Orwell. In honesty I haven't read it but after Utopia by Tom More I will. I don't know what it is about yet, the little I read on it on amazon points towards a Matrix style manipulation of the history of man or something.

"Accelerated C++" is an excellent book for the programming list. I know a guy creating a solutions page for the book if anyone is interested.

He said he's been a little slow at updating it, but it's a great tool for anyone just getting into it like I was.
