Although describing a particular computer language (Super-BASIC) on a particular computer (the Sinclair QL) this book is more than a language manual. It assumes no prior knowledge of other languages but introduces, by example, the concept of a stored program and its execution. It builds on the introductory example by bringing in more and more facilities of the language, illustrating each with a non-trivial example. In addition to clarifying aspects of the language these examples explain and illustrate some fundamental programming techniques such as graphics, state tables, list processing, several methods of sorting, and reverse Polish notation. Recursion, structured programming and a tidy style are emphasized throughout. Like the author's previous works on programming this book is lettered entirely by hand, being full of illustrations and diagrams. The English is always simple, always clear.
