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
