Think Like a Programmer: Now in Japanese!

The Japanese translation of Think Like a Programmer is now available, published by ASCII Media Works. It's really cool to see my work in translation, unfortunately, unlike the German edition, I don't even know a smattering of Japanese.

Japanese TLAP (small)

According to Google Translate, the title says:

Let's forge problem-solving skills

Book concept of programmer the body gets more interesting!

For some reason I think that translation may be inaccurate. I'm also curious about the last chapter, in which I bring all of the concepts together in an example program that cheats at the childhood game Hangman. It's occurred to me that it would be very difficult to play Hangman in a language where character symbols tend to represent whole words rather than component sounds. It appears that the Japanese edition is describing the Hangman game as played in English. I hope that Japanese readers can follow that discussion without too much trouble. If you speak Japanese and pick up the book, please let me know how you like it!
