Programmers Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for professional programmers interested in conceptual questions about software development. It's 100% free, no registration required.

There seem to be a lot of programming books on coding style and best practices and then of course a lot of books on organizational or team process e.g. agile/scrum/kanban, etc. I'm looking for books that discuss the process and method of solving programming problems.

My first thought was the following book, but I encourage you to read up on it (and read the reviews) to make sure it captures the nuance of what you are looking for. Regardless, a great book!

The Pragmatic Programmer is such a great book and is definitely a must read for programmers/developers. –  alvincrespo Feb 28 '11 at 4:36
