Yes, very much so, although I would personally consider the domain and discipline of programming broader even than that. Here is a paragraph from the Preface that helps set the stage for the book:
There is an art, craft, and science to programming that extends far beyond the program. The act of programming marries the discrete world of computers with the fluid world of human affairs. Programmers mediate between the negotiated and uncertain truths of business and the crisp, uncompromising domain of bits and bytes and higher constructed types.
