It's hard not to compare this book to Dijkstra's and Feijen's "A Method of Programming." Kaldewaij credits Dijkstra with the creation of the calculational method, and mentions work by several programmers in developing it -- including Feijen. Kaldewaij also acknowledges Feijen for "teaching me everything he knows about programming." Additionally, Kaldewaij mentions that many of the exercises in the book come from "A Method of Programming."

Although "Derivation of Algorithms" covers the same ground
