Review: The Psychology of Computer Programming

User Review  - Steve Losh - Goodreads

A fantastic, practical introduction to thinking about the psychology of computer programming. Unlike most books, the author isn't afraid to say "we don't know" when there's a question they don't have the answer to. It's a refreshingly honest feeling book. Read full review
