‘The Seasoned Schemer’ by Daniel P. Friedman and Matthias Felleisen

‘More Brain Twisting Fun’
Score: 4/5

Daniel P. Friedman

This follows on from the earlier book ‘The Little Schemer’, and it’s a similar structure. Fun examples that lead to complete brain meltery. This book tackles things like ‘continuations’, something a lot of programmers these days aren’t that familiar with. It adds an interesting way of tackling problems, and it does need a slightly different way of thinking about things.

Confused Note: I have no idea why Amazon’s listing makes no mention of Matthias Felleisen as co-author.

Other random note: Amazon tells me I bought this book in May 1999. Yes, that’s how long my to-read pile is. 15 years.
