About the Author:

Hal Abelson is Class of 1922 Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a fellow of the IEEE. He is a founding director of Creative Commons, Public Knowledge, and the Free Software Foundation. Additionally, he serves as co-chair for the MIT Council on Educational Technology.

Review:

"A truly modern introductory text which allows students to discuss the major interesting questions of today. It is a tribute to Professors Abelson and Sussman that they were willing to spend their valued research time to produce such a magnificent text. Controlling complexity, the major theme of the book, is a major concern of programming language designers and software engineers. Imperative, applicative, object-oriented, and logic-based are four trends of programming languages. Scheme allows examples of each.... This book is a rare achievement."
Daniel P. Friedman, Indiana University
