Yes, that's not bad.  A little too tool-centric for my tastes, but
it does give good general concepts (e.g., "Finding your bug is a
process of confirming the many things that you believe are true --
until you find one which is *not* true.") and excellent examples
for the language used, C.

Of course, if I'd wanted to know what Google thinks, I'd have
asked Google.  Perhaps you were wondering why I didn't; I'm hoping
that one of the experienced teachers who posts here might make a
recommendation backed by their experience.  That would carry much
more weight (with me, at least) than Google's page rank.
