That may be the one, but I told you about all I know about it.  It  
was Stroustrup's recommendation, not mine. ;)  Might be best to see  
if you can find it in a library or something, though the piles of  
'practical' pulp that fill the computer shelves these days have  
probably displaced it everywhere but university libraries.

I didn't have any particular book in mind, but The Structure and  
Interpretation of Computer Programs and ML For the Working Programmer  
are both good books.  The former is also available for free online,  
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.
