This review is from: Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs (Second Edition) (Hardcover)
Thiese book seems contradictory. It tries to teach proper programming, but at the same time, it requires me using a poorly designed development system, withoet a debugger, or at least without any helpful statements as to where exactly in the program an error ocured. They couldnt do even this little.
But, specific interpreters aside, the presentation of material is bad too. It is either very boring, or if it is somewhat interesting, it is only given 2 pages, such as with huffman trees. Some topics are outright useles, like streams, or self evident, such as local state. In short, this is a waste of time.
