cover Code: The Hidden Language of Computer Hardware and Software
by Charles Petzold (ISBN: 0735611319)

  The New Hacker's Dictionary
by Eric Raymond (ISBN: 0262680696)

A classic from 1991 but still up to date. It is a real dictionary -complete- with industry terms. Of course there are lots of terms missing that appeared later, but it is still funny and quite informative (440 pages).
