Introduction of Ada
Chapman and Hall, ISBN 0-412-44810-6, 1993.

Review by Dick Grune, dick@cs.vu.nl:

Entertaining and yet thorough text book on Ada. Covers methodological issues where useful; explains fully the need for high-level languages, structuring, constant declarations, arrays, etc. Full of amusing and instructive cartoons, typographically well supported, though perhaps somewhat loud. Definitely a good book to learn Ada from, if you're not a techofreak. Full treatment of the language, including generics, tasks, I/O and some pragmas. Less bone dry than Barnes, but perhaps sometimes too explicit.
