Here is the curated list of the best books of all time. Most of them are self-help books. These will help you upgrade your life.
This is the list prepared by Chris Maunder, who has co-founded CodeProject.com.
CodeProject.com is one of the best resource for technical information, specific to programming language, design and architecture. They cover brief as well as in-depth information on best known technologies. I had subscribed to their new letter which is one the best source for my daily tech needs.
