Computer Science : An Overview. by Dennis Brylow and J. Glenn Brookshear. This book was invaluable in the 4th Ed, the 7th Ed is even better. Provides an introduction to the computer science discipline. The material is easier to follow, better diagrams, and expanded material. Get it if you want a good overview of Computer Science - if you're looking for Microsoft training, look elsewhere.

Now in its ninth edition, this book continues to provide a comprehensive, accessible, and up-to-date introduction to the dynamic field of computer science using a breadth-first approach. This book presents an introductory survey of computer science. It explores the breadth of the subject while including enough depth to convey an honest appreciation for the topics involved. The new edition includes reorganization of some key material for enhanced clarity (Software Engineering andArtificial Intelligence chapters), new and expanded material on Security and Data Abstractions, more on ethics and different ethical theories in Chapter 0. Anyone interested in gaining a thorough introduction to Computer Science.

I rented this for a computer science course. It's easily one of the most hard-to-read textbooks I've ever had. Things that should be simple are made convoluted and complicated, and trying to read it is like licking a brick wall. Whenever I get to class and the teacher explains whatever the book was trying to, it becomes instantly clear. Computer science, in my opinion, is not a subject that lends itself to the traditional textbook format.

I have been working in IT industry for the past 20 years. I was looking for a good intro and overview of computer science for my 16 year old son who is starting to program in Python. I read it first before recommending it to him and fell in love with the text. It is kept at a perfect level of abstraction for a student to comprehend the subject with a moderate level of difficulty. I love how author progresses from "concrete to abstract" in each chapter and throughout the book and concludes with a brief intro to the Theory of Computing. My son is getting into it too.

This is a decent overview of computer science textbook. A few people rated this poorly but honestly I felt my instructors used the material well and thier lectures built on what Brookshear was trying to accomplish with this textbook. This was used for an overview introductory class not a hard core algorithm or programming course.

Extremely satisfied with the book. Very well written and designed. The good sign of a great study book for me is when you read and the question arises and then a couple of paragraphs later you find your question explained. This is about this book!

I read this as required reading for a Computer Science Course. The book is well structured with good explanations, bold highlighting of key words/concepts. The best parts are the historical background in each of the key areas. Though some of the content has likely been updated in these later editions, unfortunately the overall feel is that of a textbook that hasn't changed significantly in over a decade. The color combo and graphic layout is a cookie cut from many of the other textbooks I've endured plowing through over the years. Nothing really exciting jumped out at me.

If you're a student using this book as the required text for a course, you'll find it works well. If you're looking to be inspired by a text covering the dynamic and exciting field of computer science, this one could be improved on.

Fairly informative but the book is rather bland, especially from a student's perspective.

i loved this book. excellent explanations if you take the time to actually read and think about it in order to understand. if you skim through it, you will understand nothing
