Book List for Developers and Software Engineers

This is a non-exhaustive list of books (not necessarily technical) spurred on by this Twitter thread. It focuses particularly on books to help juniors improve their job placements. But most are beneficial for all levels, and for more than just work. I’ll add/revise this list as appropriate. At the time of this compilation (March 2021), it’s in no particular order.
