What do you guys think of Bentley's "Programming Pearls" books?

Or P.J. Plauger's "Programming on Purpose"? It's an old book from the
structured programming days and has some nice discussions of how the
structure of the inputs and outputs determines the shape of a program.
Not particularly applicable to the design of event-driven, interactive programs,
but for data-transforms it seems pretty good.
