My wife gave me a real geek book for Christmas: Masterminds of Programming by two guys named Federico Biancuzzi and Shane Warden. In it they interview the creators of 17 well-known or historically important programming languages. The book was a very good read, partly because not all the questions were about the languages themselves. The interviewers seemed very knowledgeable, and were able to spring-board from discussing the details of a language to talking about other software concepts that were important to its creator.
They wrote the languages we love (and hate).
