Donald Knuth _championed_ Literate Programming, and yet there is a
TeXbook and a METAFONTbook to go with "TeX, The Program" and
"METAFONT, The Program", and the latter two are not really useful
without having worked with the former two.

Indeed, for most people it is the latter which are dispensable.
