How Computers Really Work

Front Cover
Osborne McGraw-Hill, 1993 - Computers - 383 pages
"Here at last is the easily-understood yet thoroughly detailed explanation of the inner-workings of microcomputers that you assumed existed but could never find. Every computer user - students, home enthusiasts, programmers; employees of hardware, chip or peripheral manufacturers - anyone who has ever been merely curious about what's inside the computer case - can learn from this jargon-free book. The author takes you on a journey-to-the-center of-the-earth-style tour of the microcomputer, using vivid analogies and illustrations to bring the material to life." "Covering the most basic electrical devices in the computer to the massive artificial intelligence programs which allow computers to reason like human beings, How Computers REALLY Work is the only book of its kind. It deconstructs the computer making it accessible to everyone from a computer professional to a 12 year-old child. How Computers REALLY Work is destined to become a basic title for every school, library, office, or personal reference shelf."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
