Very good for beginners/intermediate

I've been working for a year now with guys who do embedded software. So many things are now clear to me! Hey, now I now why one guy is working on a monitor task! It's like I've been groping in the dark and someone has turned the lights on. I particulary liked the way the author explained what features are needed for an OS to be a real time OS (RTOS). When you are fresh out of school the experts might explain what's going on, but once you have any experience it's sink or swim. This book will help you avoid sinking.

solid waste .... of time

I'm not sure who the target audience is (besides the poorMIT undergrads who are force to sift through this [junk]), buthaving taught (as an assistant to a professor) a lower-level computer science class (one not dealing with Scheme, thankfully) I have asked many freshmen abou their thoughts on this book and the class taught out of it. *ALL*hated it. Some PhD students, whose specialty was programminglanguages, tolerated it, while other PhD students also hated it.So there you have it. If you are into programming languages likeScheme, this text is for you to salivate over Hal Abelson'sself fornication (how else would you call the senseless drivelhe wrote?). Otherwise, stay away. Beginning CS students will comeaway frustrated, as virtually every conventional algorithm isNOT implementable in scheme, and those who aren't beginnersand have no inherent interest in Scheme will simply find thebook a waste of time.
