5.0 out of 5 stars A little esoteric classic of programming 18 Feb. 2011
By S. Matthews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is about as far as it is possible for a book on programming to get from Java for Dummies, and still be a book about programming, and in fact it may not even be identifiable as a book on programming by someone used to Java for Dummies type books. Will it help you knock up a webserver with Java enterprise whatevers? No - not remotely. Will it help you to become a better programmer? Most definitely, by teaching you to be much more sensitive to the natural algebraic structure of the data you are working with.

This isn't the first, the second, or even the tenth book you should read about programming, but after you have read things like David Gries' 'Science of programming', and long after you have read things like Structure and Interpretation, you could do a lot worse than have a look at this.

Currently, second hand copies on Amazon are priced far north of 100 dollars, which seems right, though note that you can pick up copies from India, where it appears to be in print, for a lot less.
