I saw a book that seemed to be about old school BASIC programming. I put the thing in one of my Amazon wish lists. This seemed like a blast from the past. Upon further review, I figured I should spend my book budget on some more modern texts.

Today I saw an article on this book. The book covers something different than what I thought. It starts with a BASIC one liner that produces a maze on the Commodore 64. A one liner! Still not sure how that works. I downloaded the book and skimmed Chapter 1 and part of Chapter 2.

The book seems to be about a lot of things, but not necessarily about old school BASIC programming. The writing is a bit dry. However I am not interested. On a side note, proceeds from the book go towards some type or charity or something. Maybe it is worth a purchase?
