This review is from: Basic Category Theory for Computer Scientists (Foundations of Computing) (Paperback)
As a (retired) computer scientist is was a aware of Category Theory and once co-authored a paper (with an expert in the theory) that used the theory to explicate certain details for network database relationships. This then seemed the ideal book to get the understanding I had never really had. I was a bit disappointed in the helpfulness of the text in aiding understanding of the theory, the examples in the book, and in the theory itself. The last is my own problem - much useful mathematics has been developed using Category Theory. The other two are a bit more problematic, and I did find myself referring to on-line texts to get a handle on the concepts. A best it prompted me to look for more helpful texts.
