Books to understand the programmer mindset

There is a clear difference in thinking between instructing myself to do something versus instructing a computer.  It is taking some practice and getting used to; infact practicing is the main tool and I am very happy with the progress.  The next best tool is to interact with programmers, which I am also doing, either in Matt Kleinsmith's bay area deeep learning meetup at USF or in the fast ai forums.  But I am also reading a few books that recognize and talks about this difference in thinking -
1) V. Anton Spraul's Think like a programmer 2) Wes McKinney's Python for data analysis 3) Peter Norvig's Paradigms of artificial intelligence programming
