This book converted me from a D20 hater to a D20 advocate


I don't play the Star Wars RPG, but I do use the manuals for research for a Star Wars novel I'm working on. Having played AD&D when I was younger, it seems to me that this manual does a pretty good job. Two things that disappointed me as a reader (and probably would have as an RPG player) are: 1. the poor quality pictures that managed to make it into this book (check out page 249 as a prime example - a blurry mess - and 235 - talk about a poor photograph! and 257 - why bother with that one??), 2. the lack of better images or diagrams of starships (an essential part of SW RPG play, it would seem). On a positive note, the map of the galaxy on pp. 208-209 is excellent.

Title: Types and Programming Languages
Publisher: The MIT Press
Authors: Benjamin C. Pierce
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Well put, practical and theoretic book on types.


Extremely well written book on type systems in programming languages. Uses lambda calculus to explain type systems. Practical aspects show up in the ML implementations downloadable on the books site.
Contains a lot of programming language theory besides just type-systems. Can be used as an introductionary book to programming language design. Concluding: Great book!
