This is a great introduction to general computer topics.

Some topics are covered hastily and without enough depth, but that is a concession you have to make when trying to introduce so many topics in a concise manner.

This book is only an introduction. Don't buy it expecting to glean deep and intuitive information from its pages.
It's an amazing introduction for those inexperienced with computer science topics. Use it to orient what you wish to learn.

I think that computer technology has become too complicated to be covered by one book. This book covers many of the modern topics but with very little detail. For someone interested in learning more about their computer and how it works it seems that it would be more useful to buy texts that focus on a more limited range of topics.

Great book for my college education. The only thing i didn't like is in the first couple of chapters they cover very simple terminology and products, and then all of a sudden before you know it you're learning about complicated coding. It's a requirement, so I am trudging through it, but it's become a tough one to muddle through since the 6th or 7th chapter.

It's a good book but I do think the little blurbs on some pages are silly since they are often completely unrelated to what you're reading about. You'll be reading about algorithms and see a little "did you know?" kind of a box and go to read it thinking it will be some interesting tidbit about the subject and instead it's about if pirating software is ethical, leaving you scratching your head wondering why they put that there. Also there is no mention of Big O notation.

I needed this for my Software Engineeeing Degree, and it is super helpful! Has exercises in the book that you use to practise.

This was a recommended book for my Computer Science class, and I always like getting my books for class so I shopped around and found the great deal to rent it on amazon, I did not read chapter by chapter for what we were working on in class but when it was time for the test it was great to look up information to get a little more detail on the topic that the slides my professor had did not really explain well. if its a recommended book for your class I suggest renting it from amazon it only cost me $27 for the whole spring semester while the school I go to wanted over $100!
I was completely satisfied.
