Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs has had a dramatic impact on computer science curricula over the past decade. This long-awaited revision contains changes throughout the text. There are new implementations of most of the major programming systems in the book, including the interpreters and compilers, and the authors have incorporated many small changes that reflect their experience teaching the course at MIT since the first edition was published., A new theme has been introduced that emphasizes the central role played by different approaches to dealing with time in computational models: objects with state, concurrent programming, functional programming and lazy evaluation, and nondeterministic programming. There are new example sections on higher-order procedures in graphics and on applications of stream processing in numerical programming, and many new exercises. In addition, all the programs have been reworked to run in any Scheme implementation that adheres to the IEEE standard.

Challenging in the right ways Can’t recommend this book enough, though it is a difficult text for a beginner. Many beginner textbooks emphasise quickly learning how to write programs whilst this one teaches the underlying principles first. This book has no ‘hello world’, but makes you think about what is going on “under the hood”.

Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs (Second Edition) A classic, before the fall (they started using Python). I advice buying second edition, and hardcover, not softbound.

A must read for every serious programmer This book has to be read as a self study. Mind you, this is not an easy read as a self study book. It will frustrate you no end; but the results will surely be rewarding.
