Hi,

for general programming

Donald E. Knuth, "The Art of Computer Programming", Volumes 1-3, Third
Edition
Addison-Wesley


for Mathematica first of all:

Roman Maeder, "Programming in Mathematica", Third Edition,
Addison-Wesley

and

David B. Wagner, "Power Programming with Mathematica  The Kernel"
MacGraw-Hill 1996


Hope that helps
