The best "BP" book yet, 3 Dec. 2007
Perhaps it is easier for a telecommunications engineer turned computer software engineer to read but I found the book to be compelling. The book is not only technically impressive, it rings true in the portrayal of the characters and their relationships. I think only the Post Office Engineering Department, later the P.O. Telecomms Business could have produced Tom Flowers. I worked with many like him, engineers with the intuitive flair necessary to create complex systems who entered the business at the very bottom and rose through it by merit.
