Top reviews from other countries
- There was no spaces that it made my eyes hurt.
- No stylistic separation between different paragraphs/topics which makes it hard to know if the author moved from a topic to another or no.
- But in general, the characters were clear. i.e., there was nothing like vanished characters, if I remember correctly.
- Really, the content is great.
- Again, the content is really really great.
- You may think the content is outdated, but I felt it very relevant.
Writing style: Good or okay.
- Sometimes, it's very nice and in other times, partially due to no-stylistic-separation problem, you can't understand what the author means.
- A few times, there's too much meta-writing. Stuff like "So, next I will talk about X". I don't like that. I prefer that to be done through providing extra spaces between the paragraphs of the new topic. This was mainly in the first 3 chapters.
So, in general, would highly recommend!
It is a failure, because it was written in the 1980s, and now computers train children, and children almost never learn to program computers.
Everybody should read this, parents particularly, and teachers more than parents.
This book describes the Logo programming environment as it was in the 1980s. Computing has moved on, and there isn't much of Logo left these days.
Computer programming to a deep level could never have been easy, but I'm not sure whether it has become more difficult than it absolutely needed to be.
