Computer: A History of the Information Machine


Most people trace the origins and development of the computer to the work of three people: the brilliant British cryptologist Alan Turing; the wildly creative father of cybernetics, John von Neuman; and Steve Jobs, popularizer of the personal computer. The true story is much more complex and fascinating. This book offers the saga of the early pioneers--the colorful geniuses who tried and failed to build successful computers. Illustrations.
