- The examples have been rewritten to use Java instead of Pascal, making the book compatible with modern approaches to introductory computer science.
- The code used in the book is designed to be fully compatible with the libraries produced by the ACM Java Task Force, as well as with other standard approaches to teaching Java.
- The chapters on recursive backtracking and graphical applications have been expanded to support interesting examples enabled by current technology.
- The author is widely recognized as an expert teacher and has won numerous teaching awards at Stanford. He was the principal author of the ACM/IEEE-CS report on Computing Curricula 2001 and received the ACM-SIGCSE Award for Outstanding Contributions to Computer Science Education in 2003.
