Very interesting book for those interested in the advance of computer scienceGranskad i Storbritannien den 26 augusti 2019
We have all heard of the famouse people that have driven electronic products for the masses in recent years. This book also highlights the unsung heroes that also made contributions either as individuals of more importantly as part of a team. Improvements in electronics that everyone now takes for granted has been done incrementally over many years with very few earth shattering individual moments. As with cars we didn't go from a Model T Ford to a modern Formula 1 car overnight. A lot of small improvements happened in between.

Importantly left out PlatoGranskad i Storbritannien den 4 augusti 2021
Not sure how this oversight made it through but the system that first took the flat screen and touchscreen idea into actual use is left out here. University of Illinois's Plato, as well as a terminal was also a networked system that at one time was briefly larger than the Arpanet and certainly more open. I mean, there's a chapter on the Internet! Come on! Otherwise a good book.
Outstanding history of Computers and the people who made themGranskad i Storbritannien den 15 juli 2018
An absolutely outstanding book about the people behind the computers you're viewing this review on. From Ada Lovelace and Babbage all the way up to Jobs and Gates. This should be mandatory reading for any tech entrepreneur.
A must for Computer HistoriansGranskad i Storbritannien den 22 december 2014
I am still in the middle of reading this book but as I expected Walter Isaacson has done a first class job on his research and his style of writing is clear and easy flowing but still manages to provide in depth studies on the Innovators of the computer age. When I have completed this book I will update my post.
