I agree; to me SICP encapsulates what it means to
think like a computer scientist.  If someone wanted to
get a overview of CS SICP is the book I'd tell them to
read.  I've heard strong recommendations for Gilbert
Strang's "Introduction to Applied Mathematics".  Can
anyone recommend similar books in other fields?
