Ercises the Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs SICP a couple of months ago Then I ve stumbled on reviews saying that this book is a logical next step in learning the The Cowboy and His Baby programming language theory I don t agree with them It really doesn t add that much Many topics and examples are just reiterations of those from SICPChapters concerning concurrentrogramming are well worth reading but because of the choice of the language and its kernel implementation it s hard to just jump into them If you re coming from SICP I d rather recommend reading books on dataflow concurrency and concurrent Secure Location programming with threads and messageassingIn my opinion CTM is an alternative to but not a continuation of SICPIf you re still
