The Personal MBA (PMBA) is an experiment in educational entrepreneurism. This manifesto
will show you how to substantially increase your knowledge of business on your own time
and with little cost, all without setting foot inside a classroom.
The PMBA is more fexible than a traditional MBA program, doesn’t involve going into mas-
sive debt, and won’t interrupt your income stream for two years. Just set aside some dedi-
cated reading time, pick up a good book, learn as much as you can, and go out and make
great things happen....
Linux is a Unix-like computer operating system assembled under the model of free and open source software development and distribution.Linux was originally developed as a free operating system for Intel x86-based personal computers. It has since been ported to more computer hardware platforms than any other operating system. Most Linux distributions support dozens of programming languages.
The computing world has undergone a revolution since the publication of The C Programming Language in 1978. Big computers are much bigger, and personal computers have capabilities that rival mainframes of a decade ago. During this time, C has changed too, although only modestly, and it has spread far beyond its origins as the language of the UNIX operating system.
In the spring of 2006, I had the privilege of taking a very early look at what would eventually

This book is about programming. So, what is programming? The term programming means to
create (or develop) software, which is also called a program. In basic terms, software contains
the instructions that tell a computer—or a computerized device—what to do.
Software is all around you, even in devices that you might not think would need it. Of
course, you expect to find and use software on a personal computer, but software also plays a
role in running airplanes, cars, cell phones, and even toasters.
How many times have you been told you ’ d lose weight if you just followed
“ the plan ” ? And how many times has the burst of enthusiasm brought
by your short - term success turned into disappointment? Many times, I
think, leading you to consider it your own personal failure. If you had
