Computer Science Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for students, researchers and practitioners of computer science. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I ask simply if is there an equivalent to the Princeton Companion to Mathematics for Computer Science, both as aim and quality. I see similar questions about book suggestions on the site, but no so specific.

I'd recommend Brookshear any day, but am not sure about the resemblance to Gowers.

Foundations of Computer Science by Al Aho and Jeff Ullman

Why do you think that this particular book is the best fit? Just giving one item as an answer is not very helpful and a reason why questions as this one (then correctly called list questions) are not considered as good questions for the SE format. –  A.Schulz Dec 12 '12 at 7:43
