Understanding Operating Systems, International Edition
Understanding Operating Systems, International Edition
by MCHOES/FLYNN
Edition: Paperback
Price: 60.80

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read - too expensive!, 9 May 2013
This book is a must read if you're (or are going to) study Computer Science. It's well written and organised in a very useful fashion. The quality of writing and use of helpful diagrams makes understanding concepts a doddle.

My only issue with this book is the ridiculous cost. In no way is it worth nearly 60!

There are PDF versions available on the internet... :)


The Cuckoo's Egg: Tracking a Spy Through the Maze of Computer Espionage
The Cuckoo's Egg: Tracking a Spy Through the Maze of Computer Espionage
by Cliff Stoll
Edition: Paperback
Price: 9.37

5.0 out of 5 stars If you have used a computer then you should read this..., 24 Aug 2012
Clifford Stoll takes you on an arduous journey in a time when computer crime was not taken seriously. The book is well written and once started, is hard to put down... The story does cover some technical information but it is well explained, making it easy for all to follow. A great read that is interesting for someone working or interested in computers and also for those who don't use computers (although I fail to see how you could be reading this review!). Awesome!

Code: The Hidden Language of Computer Hardware and Software

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book!, 9 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A really interesting read. I am studying computer science and found this book very interesting and informative. It is written assuming no knowledge (although you do need to be able to read). This does mean that people (such as myself) who already know lots about the subject could find the beginning boring but stick with it; it gets really interesting!
