I came across this book, to help me understand, behind the scenes of Computing.

As with the reviews, I do believe this is an important book. It's going to help you form abstraction. It will give you the foundational base.

Sometimes, I dream that a Computer is layers of the movie Inception.

Too many times, I come across people in industry -- who would say, I program in 10 different languages, and thump their chest. There's nothing wrong with a person who has the ability to program in 10 different languages.

The more important ability -- is to master abstraction, represent problem-sets and solve them. For this, one can use a programming language of his own choice contingent upon the requirements.

If you do not read this book, Yes, I'd reiterate you'd be a garbage programmer. This is regardless of domain or language.

I really appreciated this book. It uses LISP. I think, what matters to a reader is raising the ability of understanding. If you want a summary of it, do send me a message.

I would recommend this to anyone involved with building software, researchers, engineers.

Deus Vult,
Gottfried

This is a comprehensive book that would have been fantastic had I not learned half of it in university, and the other half from functional programming. Most of the problems in the book feel like they're desperately grasping for a type-system, and needing to be very clever in order to get around their lack of such. It's not a bad read by any means, but I didn't get nearly as much out of it as people promised I would.
