Picturing Programs: an Introduction to Computer Programming
by Stephen Bloch
Publisher: College Publications 2010
Number of pages: 480
Picturing Programs is a textbook for beginning computer programming, not directed towards learning a particular programming language, but rather at learning to program well. This book can be used at the high school (and perhaps middle school) level, while providing enough advanced concepts not usually found in a first course to challenge a college student.
