The book teaches how to program by employing the tools of abstraction and modularity. The central philosophy is that programming is the task of breaking large problems into small ones. You will learn how to program and how to think about programming.

Many people would regard this as being two books in one. One book is an introduction to programming, teaching you basic concepts of organizing data and the programs that operate over them. The other book is an introduction to programming languages.
This book is an attempt to describe a bit of the programming languages zoo. We use each of the particular languages to introduce fundamental notions related to the design and the implementation of general purpose programming languages.
