I'm def. interested, but I'm not sure if:
* it's something that I can read for a week or two, for someone to use play with compilers & things (doesn't look like it)
* and if it'll pay off, as I live in a non-US country which means cheap editions are still pricey due to shipping.
If after that you're decently good with those and want more, you can look at grad-level materials, though in my personal opinion the materials for those can be quite a bit more dry (and painful) if you try to self-study, at least unless you find a particularly good source.
