Review the First Sample Chapters For Our CS Book For Beginners

You may remember hearing about a project I've been involved with for the last couple of years.  We're working on a book about computer science designed for beginners; something that could be used, for example, in my "introduction to computers for arts and social sciences" class.  Well, we've finally got two chapters ready for review, and would love to get your feedback on how we're doing so far.

Note: If you're a beginner in the world of computer science, even better!

The first sample chapter is on Data Representation. This is the first chapter from Part I of the book, which covers computing fundamentals.  The second chapter is on Artificial Intelligence. This is one of our in-depth subject areas and builds on concepts introduced in basic chapters.  It will appear in Part II of the book, which surveys some of the major fields found within computer science.

If you're interested in helping out, you can review either one of the chapters, or both.  There is a short survey to fill in about the chapters.  We also intend to publish a list of our reviewers, should you wish to have your name included.

If you're interested, please contact me, and I'll send you all the information and links you need.  (If you've left your email with us in the past, and haven't heard from us yet about this review opportunity, you probably will.  Please still feel free to contact me directly now.)
