"The consistent usage of examples throughout the book is excellent. I rely heavily on examples for instruction as there is no better way to teach programming." — Joan Boone, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

Meet the Author
Walter Savitch received his Ph.D. degree in Mathematics from the University of California at Berkeley in 1969. Since that time he has been on the faculty at the University of California at San Diego and is currently a Professor of Computer Science and director of the Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Program in Cognitive Science. Professor Savitch’s research areas include complexity theory, formal language theory, computational linguistics, and the development of computer science education materials. In addition to writing numerous research articles and involvement in other editorial projects, he has written a number of well-known computer science textbooks, including Pascal, Ada, and C++ CS1 and CS2 textbooks.
Contributing author, Kenrick Mock, is an Associate Professor at the University of Alaska–Anchorage. He has also taught at Washington State University, Portland State University, and the University of California–Davis. He teaches undergraduate computer science courses across the curriculum including introductory C++, Java™, Visual Basic® for non-programmers, algorithms, computer security, and artificial intelligence. With the Coastal Marine Institute at UAA, he helped develop a computer system to aid in research about Alaska sea ice and the atmosphere. Before becoming a teacher, Mock was a research scientist and software engineer at Intel™. He received a PhD in computer science from UC Davis.
I was disappointed to learn that nook textbooks are not view-able on non-nook tablets. I felt deceived, since the nook for android app page lists only the possible uses of the app, and not it's limitations. I recently bought an android tablet, and I assumed that because nook tablets are built on android, I would be able to read my textbooks within the nook app for android. Unfortunately, it seems that Barnes & Noble has followed Amazon's lead in allowing e-textbooks to be read only on proprietary tablets, in addition to desktop applications. If you have an android tablet and want to view this book on it, I would recommend looking at other sources.
