From the reviews of the fifth edition:
“The book’s 16 chapters start with the history of computing for some reason, along with superficial chapters on morality, law, and ethics. … This book is clearly useful as an introductory textbook. … End-of-chapter references and suggestions for further reading are extensive and helpful in a classroom setting, as are end-of-chapter exercises.” (David Bellin, Computing Reviews, February, 2014)Vom Verlag:
