For those who want to see Dijkstra's mathematics of programs in action:

1) basic (great for kids, math novices, whatever): https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0470684534/ref=dbs_a_def_r... (ignore the two star review, this book would get 5 stars from me)

2) advanced (free, complete with videos): http://www.cs.toronto.edu/~hehner/aPToP/

3) advanced: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0470848820/ref=dbs_a_def_r...

4) advanced, theoretical, from the man himself: https://www.springer.com/gp/book/9781461279242
