Debugging by Thinking: A Multi-Disciplinary Approach is the first book to apply the wisdom of six disciplines-logic, mathematics, psychology, safety analysis, computer science, and engineering-to the problem of debugging. It uses the methods of literary detectives such as Sherlock Holmes, the techniques of mathematical problem solving, the results of research into the cognitive psychology of human error, the root cause analyses of safety experts, the compiler analyses of computer science, and the processes of modern engineering to define a systematic approach to identifying and correcting software errors.

* Language Independent Methods: Examples are given in Java and C++

* Complete source code shows actual bugs, rather than contrived examples

* Examples are accessible with no more knowledge than a course in Data Structures and Algorithms requires

* A “thought process diary” shows how the author actually resolved the problems as they occurred
