Structured Design: Fundamentals of a Discipline of Computer Program and Systems Design. ISBN 978-0-13-854471-3. Learning to Program in Structured COBOL, Part I and II. With C. Gane and T. Sarson and T. Lister.

Good book to understand structured design. Seller did a very fast shipping.

Structured Design needs a few modern elements though to cope with programming techniques that didn't really exist in the 80's, primarily exceptions which contradict the principle of SD, as well as derivation of structures/records (which is NOT identical to OOD), but I think it is possible to extend the design philosophy accordingly. Good book to understand structured design.

Format Hardback 384 pages.

This is a classic text.

Jan 30, 2015 Vern rated it it was amazing. This is a classic text. I find his ideas on testing to still be quite valid. I read first read this in my first years as a programmer, over 40 years ago.

The Art of Computer Programming by Donald Knuth. Then at least read Techniques of Program Structure and Design by Ed Yourdon. Less weighty, but no less a classic, and should be required reading by serious programmers. Kind of like you hope your airline pilot has read Stick and Rudder.

Provides a practical explanation of modular and structural programming principles and techniques applicable to all major languages.
I read this book for the first time when I was learning programming 25 years ago. I did not really get it back then, because I was not yet aware of all the fundamental difficulties in software engineering that the book describes. Today, despite of all innovations in tools and processes, the software engineering culture is still as immature as it was in the 1970s. This book (along with "Mythical man-month") is a must read for software team leads.
A classic from the late 70s. Still applicable, but examples are stale (Fortran, Assembly)
Very interesting and readable
I haven't been able to find this book in print, but it has one of the most entertaining peer reviews I have ever read:

An example of hilarious nonsense can be found on page 281 where "it seems that the number [...] of bugs increases exponentially with the number of instructions in the module." This tells us that by making a module large enough we can achieve that the number of bugs exceeds the number of instructions in the module, nay, even exceeds the number of bits needed to store these instructions! The frightening thing about this piece of nonsense, however, is that , in spite of an earlier chapter on "Modular Programming" --of more than 40 pages-- the author still thinks he can meaningfully speak of "the number of bugs in a module". If he had used that earlier chapter to develop a meaningful concept "module", he would have discovered that the "number of bugs in a single module" is either zero or one, i.e. the module is either correct or not. In the latter case, counting their number is as meaningless as counting the number of misspellings in the names of the well-known authors in computer science "Ivan Yourdon" or "Niklaus Hoare".

Will I be purchasing it? Hmm...
