3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Rubens Altimari on December 29, 2000
Format: Hardcover
This is a homage to Dijkstra, but there is no articles by him: the editor asked people who have worked (in some way) with Dijkstra to write an article specially for the book, and that is what it is. In other words, there is no other common ground to them. Anyway, this is a book about Computer Science, not about the man himself. A little too expensive, in my opinion...
