How to Think Like a Computer Scientist: Interactive Edition, Brad Miller, May 05, 2017
Commentary by Stephen Downes

At a certain point this online text reverts back into being an ordinary textbook, but the premise was interesting. It has often been said that to learn how to become something - a computer scientist, say - is to be able to think like that kind of person. And so that's what this guide sets out to do. Alas, computer science also involves an awful lot of small things like string methods, GUI and recursion, so you get less of the 'think like a' and more of the detail.
