This is an excellent text! The title implies a purpose of presenting the PL/I language with respect to scientific and engineering programming, but the book accomplishes much more. In addition to a good general introduction to computers, the author works in valuable background material from computer science, mathematics, and good programming techniques. The reader who masters this text will have acquired a strong general background in scientific computing in addition to extreme competence in PL/I programming.
