A fantastic story, inspiring to anyone who has ever had a fascination with computers. I have a great, new, respect for the people that are documented in this book. The things that they did were incredible for the time and they advanced society's technology against great odds.

User Review  - Nicholas Tollervey - Goodreads

Appropriately enough, I bought this book at a programming conference in Florence last summer where I read most of it v.quickly (I only just finished the final chapters this afternoon).
