Not a *programming* book but an ideas book: I enjoyed _The Armchair 
Universe_ and _The Magic Machine_ by A. K. Dewdney when I was growing up.

See http://www.csd.uwo.ca/faculty/akd/PERSONAL/books_and_articles.html
The Armchair Universe

A collection of lightly edited columns from Scientific American, including 
the Mandelbrot Set, wallpaper for the mind, analog computers, hypercubes, 
the conversational program Racter, a checkers-playing program, three 
dimensional Life, the sharks and fish of Wa-Tor, core War, and many 
others. Readers with a modicum of programming skill can bring most of 
these recreations to life.
