2.0 out of 5 stars The same as the 2nd edition, except for Subsection 2.4 (!!)

4.0 out of 5 stars A good book, 23 May 2013

This review is from: Introduction to the Theory of Computation (Paperback)
A very well written and easily understandable book. It gets straight to the point and explains everything in detail in a short way. I only give it 4 stars as the material is only somewhat interesting to me.
