in reply to Which non-Perl books made you a better (?:Perl )?Programmer?

One book that I haven't seen mentioned yet is Practical Software Mainetance by Thomas Pigoski. It's about the only book that I have seen that focuses on maintaining existing systems. (Why is that there is so much literature devoted to building new systems and so little on maintaining existing ones when the majority of the work out there is presumably maintaining the existing ones?)
