    Wow! What a great link. The introduction is VERY well written -- comparing us being taught as children to 'being programmed'. I'll be sure to incorporate a bit of that into my lecture :-)

    How does this text differ from the Structure & Interpretation of Computer Programs (SIPC) book? They both look like they could cover a lot of the same ground, but I'm curious about their actual use in a classroom. The copyright on SIPC is 1996 vs 2001 for HTDP - is one a successor to the other?

      These books are by different authers. That means, most probably, that at least explanations and examples are different. :)
