Indeed! It covers a part of ChucK, easily fits in any bag and it's often
funny. None of those can be said about mr. Road's "Computer Music Could You
Please Check That Book In Because It Might Be Used As A Weapon".

That last one is still a excelent introduction to computer music making and
after you've outgrown the introductory stage you'll find yourself using it
as a reference. It's big, intimidating and at times a bit dated but I never
heard about anyone regretting buying that one.
