Jason Buss wrote in response to A.R. Goldman's request about writing a book
project that has come his way:

<<While most introductory books offer "no prior programming experience
needed", more often than not, that particular claim is Bravo Sierra. I think
a book that offers language-independent primers on programming concepts
(loops, conditionals, methods, classes, ect) would be a big help to
non-programmers wanting to take the plunge and try to learn a computer
language (would have helped me).>>

The text book for my programming logic course is really well written. The
book is non-language specific and that the concepts that Jason mentions
(loops, conditionals, methods, classes, etc.) were specifically covered. The
book we use in class is _A Guide to Programming Logic and Design_ by Joyce
Farrell.

A.R. Goldman may want to look at it (and other similar books) before
embarking on his project.
