3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Luigi Zambetti on 13 July 2012
Format: Paperback
I was curious to see manuals e academic texts that are currently used in English Universities (Nottingham, UK, in this case) as I still have fresh memories of the subject from my years at the Politecnico of Milan, and I must say that I was impressed, almost envious, by this book written by Professor Backhouse.
The aesthetic comparison alone, compared to my old manuals, is impressive. Here we have a book which has focused on the very finer details: excellent layout, enjoyable font, written and indented formulas and perfectly clear pictures. The smooth paper is very nice and it has a sturdy binding but not too stiff.

Since the topic itself has complexity in its DNA, it is presented well, makes it interesting (almost intriguing) for students in the first year of Computer Science ( the course on which the book is based).

The approach is a bit outside the box, since it presents examples first - almost all the typical courses in Italian universities do this after the mathematical theory/algebraic.

The book is divided into 2 parts practically of the same length and number of pages.
In the first part the reader is exposed to: examples from games at the Tower of Hanoi, all with resolution explained in detail, both in words and through equations and algorithms.
They are also offered exercises to be solved and ideas for projects. The first, fortunately, have solutions and answers in Appendix.

The second is the mathematical theory which acts as a glue to algorithms - from algebra to number theory of quantifiers.

Everything is explained in English but it is easy to understand by non-native English speakers (just a decent knowledge of language is necessary).

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
a lot of exercises so you can practise what you've learned. i bought it a few months ago and only read the first 100 pages or so. did help me with my uni work but should've bought it earlier to have enough time to read all the content. but overall its a good book which covers interesting APS concepts

Format: Paperback
this book is hard to understand, the layout is bad and it jumps a lot! the logic could be better explained, rather than using boolean, and at times even the simplest things are said in the hardest way!!!
