Programming Language Pragmatics, Fourth Edition, is the most comprehensive programming language textbook available today. It is distinguished and acclaimed for its integrated treatment of language design and implementation, with an emphasis on the fundamental tradeoffs that continue to drive software development.

In 2001 he received the University's Robert and Pamela Goergen Award for Distinguished Achievement and Artistry in Undergraduate Teaching.

Review:

"Michael Scott's book could have been entitled 'Why Programming Languages Work' ... Its comprehensive and integrated presentation of language design and implementation illustrates and explains admirably the many deep and profitable connections among these fields." ―Jim Larus, Microsoft Research
"This book is the best and most complete on this topic that I've seen."   ―Klaus Ostermann, Darmstadt University of Technology
