Anyone seriously interested in programming, and electronics should read this volume. These 20 locations in All: The first five strucfures, building up to the basic digital abstraction that of logic gates from the basics of circuit physics, were a tour de force providing me an immediate firmament. One aspect of this book deserves equal praise and complaint.
