此商品在美国亚马逊上最有用的商品评论 (beta) (可能包括"Early Reviewer Rewards Program"的评论)
I have to admit I'm one of those guys who just wish my code would "somehow" work.
If in a good day my code passed all tests, I would be "convinced" it's correct.
I haven't realized how stupid that was until I came across this book.
This book was written 25 years ago, however I still find the techniques quite advanced, the way it reasons about correctness quite profound.
If you decide to pick up this book (yay!), a bit of advice:
1. Don't think it as "another" programming language book you can skim quickly, you really need to grasp the ideas behind those seemingly natural theorems & proofs.
2. Prof. David Gries himself stressed a few times in the book that even attempting to prove some of the theorems would change the way you think. So make sure you solve the problems in the exercises, you'll be surprised the concept is not as simple as it seems.
3. Find a quiet spot :) You probably don't want to read this while on a bus or subway.
Enjoy the journey!
