This book is an essential read for anyone who really wants to understand the foundations of modern computer science and software engineering. The core concepts are still as relevant now as they were when it was first published, and it provides an invaluable baseline against which to measure how far the state of the art has progressed.
This book introduced the key concepts of both structured programming and object-oriented programming nearly 30 years ago. Essays by Dahl, Dijkstra, and Hoare.
