How to Think Like a Computer Scientist (Java Version)
by Allen B. Downey
Publisher: Green Tea Press 2008
Number of pages: 306
This book is not about Java, and it is only partly about programming. If it is successful, this book is about a way of thinking. Computer scientists have an approach to problem-solving, and a way of crafting solutions, that is unique, versatile and powerful. I hope that this book gives you a sense of what that approach is, and that at some point you will find yourself thinking like a computer scientist.
