Your Favorite Language Specific Text Books
What are your favorite language specific text books/pdf's you've found to practice with? In Python, I think my two all time favorites, which are available for free download, are: Dive Into Python 3 http://www.diveintopython3.net/ How To Think Like A Computer Scientist: Learning With Python 3 Documentation http://openbookproject.net/thinkcs/python/english3e/ In C++ my favorite book so far was: Introduction To Computer Science Using C++ -Todd Knowlton

For C++, it's " Computer science with C++" -Sumita Arora....
I love HTML
PHP is fantastic
For Ruby, I would say it's "The Well-Grounded Rubyist" (currently 2nd ed.) by David Black. Hands down the best language book I've ever read, because of the pacing, depth and completeness of the material. If you read and fully understand the book, you're way past novice state, something I don't normally say about any single book.
