Cinderella Book
Jump to user comments
publication "Introduction to Automata Theory, Languages, and
Computation", by John Hopcroft and Jeffrey Ullman,
(Addison-Wesley, 1979). So called because the cover depicts a
girl (putatively Cinderella) sitting in front of a Rube
Goldberg device and holding a rope coming out of it. On the
back cover, the device is in shambles after she has
(inevitably) pulled on the rope.
