Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs: JavaScript Edition (MIT Press)
Monday, 18 July 2022

This book introduces the reader to central ideas of computation by establishing a series of mental models for computation. Earlier editions used the programming language Scheme in their program examples. In this new version of the second edition, Harold Abelson, Gerald Jay Sussman, Martin Henz and Tobias Wrigstad have adapted the examples for JavaScript.

<ASIN:0262543230>

The first three chapters cover programming concepts that are common to all modern high-level programming languages. Chapter four offers new material, in particular an introduction to the notion of program parsing. The evaluator and compiler in chapter five introduce a subtle stack discipline to support return statements (a prominent feature of statement-oriented languages) without sacrificing tail recursion.
