How to think like a Computer Scientist (C++ Version)
by Allen B. Downey
Number of pages: 189
The goal of this book is to teach you to think like a computer scientist. I like the way computer scientists think because they combine some of the best features of Mathematics, Engineering, and Natural Science. Like mathematicians, computer scientist use formal languages to denote ideas (specifically compuations). Like engineers, they design things, assembling components into systems and evaluating tradeoffs among alternatives. Like scientists, they observe the behavior of complex systems, form hypotheses, and test predictions.

Online book about how to write a computer operating system in C/C++ from scratch. The goal is to build a very simple UNIX-based operating system, not just a 'proof-of-concept'. The OS should be able to boot, start a userland shell, and be extensible.
