Computer Science: Abstraction to Implementation
by Robert M. Keller
Publisher: Harvey Mudd College 2001
Number of pages: 627
This book is intended for a broad second course in computer science, one emphasizing principles wherever it seems possible at this level. While this course builds and amplifies what the student already knows about programming, it is not limited to programming. Instead, it attempts to use various programming models to explicate principles of computational systems.

The book focuses on choosing the right algorithms and on showing how to solve problems effectively. Each chapter frames a particular programming task (sorting numbers, creating anagrams, counting the words). Code examples are written in C and C++.

Read this book if you need a much deeper understanding of programming: the need to carefully structure a program to avoid being overwhelmed by its complexity, or the need to insure reliability beyond what can he achieved by debugging.
by Nils M Holm - Lulu Press
This book introduces the concept of functional programming, describes a language that fulfills all the requirements, and shows how to solve simple problems in it. The book shows how to apply these techniques to some problems of varying complexity.

This book will teach you the fundamentals of programming and act as a foundation for whatever your programming goals may be. Rather than ignore complexities, we will face them head-on, in small steps, and unshroud the mysteries of computer language.
