I am trying to read it, got the first 3 books for christmas. I am having some trouble reading through it. It's some pretty rough stuff.

Wait, there are more than 3 books to this? I've only ever seen the 3 in the store.

And no, I've never read them and probably never will. They're definitely on my "list of stuff I wish I had time for", though.

Well, you can read preprints of portions of volume four: http://www-cs-faculty.stanford.edu/~knuth/news.html

Only the first three have been published.

[shameless bragging]
Yes, I've even done a large portion of the exercises.

I've never heard of it. But I assume these books are quite intense?
