Calendrical Calculations
Format: Kindle Edition|Change
Price:£17.76

on 26 June 2010
I bought this book to help me create calendrical algorithms in PHP for a web page, and it has been an excellent resource for this purpose. However, some of the calculations are very complicated and it was difficult to translate these from the LISP listings in the book into PHP or Javascript. And, unlike the Millennium edition, it does not come with the CD with code in Java and LISP in electronic form. However, one of the authors was kind enough to send me a CD when I asked him some questions about the code, so I still give this five stars.

Detailed and comprehensive. For one who has studied the subject - thought provoking.

For the would-be student of calendrical calculation this book is a serious disappointment. The number of errata seems to go on
and on. The attempt to deal with a number of widely differing calendars without a constant rigour in verifying the accuracy of text makes it ,if not worthless, a waste of time. A great pity.
