Learning to think like a computer scientist is definitely something I want to get better at. Critical in becoming a successful one. I'd love to win the book!

Welcome Sir Allen and Mr. Chris to the ranch. I already had the privilege to read the Preface of your 4th edition of the book and to tell you the truth It was on my waiting list since that time. Anyways, thanks for being with us and big thanks for your sharing sprite that was well stated at the beginning through the words of Benjamin Franklin...

Welcome to the Ranch both of you. I am afraid you have arrived after the end of the book promotion.
