Here is an ideal textbook on software visualization, written especially for students and teachers in computer science. It provides a broad and systematic overview of the area including many pointers to tools available today. Topics covered include static program visualization, algorithm animation, visual debugging, as well as the visualization of the evolution of software. The author's presentation emphasizes common principles and provides different examples mostly taken from seminal work. In addition, each chapter is followed by a list of exercises including both pen-and-paper exercises as well as programming tasks.
