"The only way to learn how to program is to write programs, and to become a competent programmer can take a significant investment of your time. If you want to dip your toes in to the programming water and see whether it's for you, then the Alice programming language is worth a look. It is a freely available graphical programming environment that can be downloaded for Windows, Mac or Linux. It is object-oriented, and so teaches good object-oriented programming practices right from the start. It is also fun! This book is not a full guide to the language, but it is inexpensive and will guide you far enough into the language to enable you to take full advantage of the many on-line Alice tutorials available." Dave Baker
