This is a mega-cool book
I know that I'm biased, but I honestly believe that Bebop BYTES Back is a really cool book -- suitable for beginners and experts alike and of interest to anyone from 16 to 99 years of age -- theres literally nothing else like this available on the market today. The book is accompanied by a CD-ROM containing a fully-functional virtual computer called the Beboputer (pronounced Bee-bop-you-ter), and amongst a myriad other things the book documents a series of step-by-step interactive laboratories for you to perform on the Beboputer (each lab is equipped with a multimedia overview on the CD-ROM, which contains more than 200 megabytes of mega-cool multimedia).
If you wish, you can bounce over to our web pages (http://ro.com/~bebopbb) where you can find more details about the book and screenshots of the Beboputer.
Also note that there are some special web pages that you can only access from within the Beboputer, from whence you can communicate with us (the authors), enter competitions that well put up from time to time, and download additional programs and subroutines and suchlike
The accompanying text, like the companion book, "Bebop to the Boolean Boogie", is written in the authors' inimitable style, which means you can read it for fun, and learn a lot along the way. The book is well organised into easily managed chapters combined with quizzes and Labs, seeming difficult concepts are well explained, and there's a sprinkling of "interesting" facts, like the sock color of choice for Viking Warriors, and a few cheesy jokes. Even a glance through the index entries makes you want to delve into the text. For example under 'W' we have Wagon Wheels; Walnuts, jet propelled; wetware; Winston Churchill; World, WarII; World, Wide Web; Wurstle-Grinder Mark 4! You just have to look these up to find what they have to do with computers.
Also on the CD-ROM is more than 200Mb of multimedia graphics ranging from archive video to the author's hilarious introductions.
You can download Beboputer software from the authors' website at [...]
Oh, I almost forgot, Appendix J contains a recipe for "The Best Clam Chowder in the World"
The Bebop books are not like that at all. The authors have really done an amazing job, carefully explaining complex concepts, and building on them in a methodical way that is extremely conducive to learning. I actually feel as though I have a "Mentor" looking over my shoulder, guiding me through unknown territory. Also, their sense of humor is great! I find myself chuckling over the various little one-liners that are interspersed throughout the text. They are a welcome relief to what could otherwise be a dry and somber subject matter. Plus, the Multimedia presentations are professional quality!
If you are interested in learning computers at the digital logic level, the microprogramming level, the conventional machine level, and the assembly language level, but would rather have fun doing it, then this book is for you!
the annoying beige box on your desk, this is a really
good way to find out. If you've got some computer
background and you want to pick up some interesting
stuff about where these things came from, this is
also a darned good read.
The book on its own
is neat enough, but there is a CD thrown in which
is at least as good. You are provided with a
simulation of a computer which you can play with
on your PC (Windows 95 only). This computer can
be given programs to run and you can watch what
happens. This is a *lot* more fun than it sounds.
There are also some good multimedia excursions
into this and that, and the whole thing is carried off
with a great deal of panache (and awful jokes).
I teach computing to undergraduate students. I
am going to use Bebop on my next course. I am
expecting my students to enjoy it
As the authors say, this is a mega-cool book; it's lots of fun, and is technical enough to satisfy the most serious budding programmers.
Full credit to the authors.
