From the reviews:"This remarkable monograph is an extremely well-written and pleasant and reading about abstract computing machines ... . The author chooses a somewhat 'imperative' approach to teaching, which results in the survey of a vast number of concepts provided with many useful examples. The expository style is most favourable, which could be of special value for a reader with no strong background in the area. ... Altogether, this is a book worth reading."
