If by "lateral reading" you mean reading books that are not directly connected to programming but gives you some stimulus to program more and better, then this book is the mother of all lateral reading. Whenever I get too close to it, I say to myself: "by gosh, I'm glad I'm a programmer now". I've also heard from a friend that programmed in my office for a while, that each look into this book made him a happier programmer. Or "happier to be a programmer", maybe. I'm not sure of the exact expression over the phone, since there were some retching sounds on the line.

Your description is ample in warning. I still have a waking horror of the book. Each highly detailed picture after the next of what I would consider... TOO MUCH INFORMATION!
