That may be the one, but I told you about all I know about it. It

'practical' pulp that fill the computer shelves these days have
probably displaced it everywhere but university libraries.

so there's little excuse not to check it out. :) It's not the sort
of book that will teach you how to write business applications, but
it will teach you the essence of programming.
