4.0 out of 5 stars Old school, hardcore computer science, 6 Oct 2006
This review is from: Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs (Hardcover)
I would hate to see the code from the reviewer who thinks recursion is no longer a valid topic for computer programming.

I agree with some of the other comments, this book is old school, but is that a bad thing. There are a lot of CS students graduating these days with little understanding of the basic. How many understand pointers, ( or even recursion ) for that matter.

Its interesting but a lot of the top programmers seem to have graduated the MIT course, few of them have a Computing & Business Studies degree !!!

Buy this book, work through it slowly, and enjoy the brain twisting knowledge you gain from it when you get to the end
