Programming for the Puzzled (MIT Press)
Monday, 08 January 2018

With a subtitle of "Learn to Program While Solving Puzzles", this book builds a bridge between the recreational world of algorithmic puzzles (puzzles that can be solved by algorithms) and the pragmatic world of computer programming, teaching readers to program while solving puzzles.  Author Srini Devadas has included twenty puzzles and seventy programming exercises that vary in difficulty. Each lesson starts with the description of a puzzle illustrating concepts required to solve similar problems, and the solution to the puzzle becomes the specification of the code to be written.

<ASIN:0262534304>

The book decouples understanding the functionality of the code from understanding programming language syntax and semantics. Python syntax and semantics required to understand the code are explained as needed for each puzzle.
