About the Author
From the Publisher
To my astonishment, after a few days, completed assignments started arriving in my mailbox. Still more remarkable, with the exception of Kafka’s accursed effort, they all seemed to work.
Naturally, this was all too good to keep to myself, so I’ve reproduced their solutions in this book. To help put the answers in context, I’ve written a short biography of each author and a brief explanation of what I think they were up to in their code. As a respite between assignments, I’ve included some poetic interludes: long-forgotten odes documenting their author’s struggle with everyone’s favorite programming language.
"So foul and fair a language I have not seen."—William Shakespeare

But I'm having a hard time reading on kindle. There's some layout problem on Cloud Reader and iPad, and My mac kindle doesn't even let me download this book!
Also the page layout for kindle is 2 page in 1 screen, you can see the beatifuly, carefully layout but its very hard to read. All the font size is 5px, can't imagine what will it be like on a smaller device. If not the worst, I cannot zoom in to get my font larger. Would like the kindle version to be improved, it's just preventing me to read.
