Product description

Review

'Mr Isaacson excels at explaining complex concept...which make this a good history of computing for non-geeks' --The Economist

'Isaacson is the ideal narrator of the wider story, stopping at all the important stages in the digital revolution' --Literary Review

'As Matthew Winioski declared in the Washington Post: "History at this scale tends towards either encyclopaedia or determinist manifesto, a fate Isaacson avoids by using his talent for stories to shift between romance novel, operating manual, legal briefing, memoir and humanist sermon"' --The Oldie

A precise case study of past 150 years which built the digital revolution, and how computers and internet as we know them today came into being. Drawing along the way lessons from great innovations and the inventors who brought their visions into existence.
Walter Isaacson does a great job (once more) bringing together history, reality, lessons and his great writing style into a single master piece thats a walk-through into history and developments of digital age, along the way bringing together great lessons to be drawn from the stories of great Visionaries , Inventors, Entrepreneurs, Leaders and what characters/traits made them Innovators to change and disrupt our world towards betterment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Innovators by Walter Isaacson
By Sujash Ghosh on 27 July 2019
Extraordinary binding and page quality. Font size is a bit smaller than usual but the crisp printing makes it comfortable to read.
Page count - 543

This is another great work of Walter Isaacson. The book starts with Ada Byron and her notes on the Babbage analytical engine and then travels through he highs and lows of all technological marvels and the building of the internet to personal computers and then the emergence of giant companies like Apple, Microsoft and Google. The pages contain detailed timeline maps and pictures of legends. A must buy if you are even thinking about it.

P. S. - Amazon please step up your packaging game. It's embarrassing to receive a gem of a book like this in your flimsy bubble wrap plastic bag. There is no thought of protecting the product. Please do something about it.
