TAoCP (The Art of Computer Programming) for many years has been regarded by many software developers and computer scientists as
one of most influential computer science textbooks.

Yes, the unofficial scanned versions (PDF/DJVU) can be found floating on the internet.
But now, Prof Knuth working with Mathematical Sciences Publishers have officialy released the digital version.

They are not free, unfortunately, and quite costly. Wink
A volume can cost at least $40.

Purchasing links:
Volume 1
Volume 2
Volume 3
Volume 4a

Take a note that while the books are available in "EPUB, MOBI, and PDF" formats, Prof Knuth himself "personally approved ONLY the PDF versions of these books".
Maybe "math guys" in the board (Tomasz or MHajduk) will be interested in getting them. Smile

Thanks for the info, TmX, I appreciate it, but I think that translated, traditional paper version would be about 2-3 times cheaper than PDF version (I've checked it in Polish book stores). Smile

There still exists some "gap" in standard of living between USA and Poland and $40 per volume is much more than 40 PLN. Wink

40 USD in PLN

Well indeed $40 is pretty expensive.
But then again, TAoCP are big, thick books, and for folks who want to read them on their iPads (lightweight travellling, perhaps),
the official digital version can be an attractive option.
