    Very nice and slightly opinionated account of the computer culture of the 50s outside of MITs crystal palace.The author is very humble and the whole book has exudes an atmosphere of arelaxed time when everyone was not out to promote themselves That being said, the middle parts of the book were a little slow and some of the personal anecdotes that were thrown in feel forced On the overall, a good read.

  2. Themistocles Themistocles says:

    A real page turned for anyone interested in the history of computers, this books offers both great insights into the developments after WWII and great anecdotes.That said, the book is let down somewhat by the fact that this is, actually, a personal story, offering only a view of a cross section of the history it describes with little regard to developments outside its narrow scope.And yet, or maybe because of that, it s really entertaining and worth a read.

    The book is a very interesting description of the early days of computer science and how sometimes going against the status quo shapes the future Yet the author isn t a professional writer, making the text a little bit confuse, with constants pauses on the current subject to tell something else , the book is a pleasant reading, specially for the ones interested in the history of computing A good thing is that the book goes into the technicalities the right amount to make things comprehensible The book is a very interesting description of the early days of computer science and how sometimes going against the status quo shapes the future Yet the author isn t a professional writer, making the text a little bit confuse, with constants pauses on the current subject to tell something else , the book is a pleasant reading, specially for the ones interested in the history of computing A good thing is that the book goes into the technicalities the right amount to make things comprehensible All in all, I do recommend the book since I had a very good time reading it

    This is the book to read when you grow tired of computer commerce and yearn to hear about the good old days of computer science, when engineers encountered the fundamental problems of automation and solved them or didn t solve them, in some cases, but assembled bright crews of interesting thinkers to take a crack at it This book gave me exactly what I wanted a personal story of the personal computer before it was ready to hit the shelves.
