Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs has had a dramatic impact on computer science curricula over the past decade. This long-awaited revision contains changes throughout the text.

There are new implementations of most of the major programming systems in the book, including the interpreters and compilers, and the authors have incorporated many small changes that reflect their experience teaching the course at MIT since the first edition was published.

A new theme has been introduced that emphasizes the central role played by different approaches to dealing with time in computational models: objects with state, concurrent programming, functional programming and lazy evaluation, and nondeterministic programming. There are new example sections on higher-order procedures in graphics and on applications of stream processing in numerical programming, and many new exercises.

In addition, all the programs have been reworked to run in any Scheme implementation that adheres to the IEEE standard.

Mark Fredrickson, January 20, 2008 (view all comments by Mark Fredrickson)
This book is a great introduction to virtually every school of thought in computer science. I would recommend it to hard core nerds and casual readers alike. I purchased a copy for my girlfriend and I to use as part of a local study group.

One great reason to buy this book is to use it as companion to the free online lectures or Berkeley iTunes course. The URLs are, respectively (make them all on one line, Powells does not allow URLs):

I feel obligated to mention that this book is available online for free. However, if you want the dead-tree version (as I did) get it here.
