Editorial Reviews

`The text is easy to follow and quite readable.... recommend the book as additional material for classes in computer science, especially in computer programming methods. It is also suitable as outside reading for teachers and students of information science who are willing to experiment with diverse approaches to information technology.' Computing Reviews (March 1999)
