Hi all,

I met with Ed Watkeys over this past weekend and he again mentioned
"SICP", or "Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs" by
Abelson and Sussman. This used to be standard issue for MIT CS 101
until they punked out and went to Python.

My question to this list is: how many of you have actually read SICP
(or watched all the videos)? What did you think of it? Is it as
worthwhile now as it was back in the '80's? I've not read it and am
wondering if I should pick it up.
