Fascinating account of Turing's achievements, 20 Feb 2014
When Alan Turing received a royal pardon at the close of last year, I quickly realised how little I knew of the man. The book covers more than just his most famous ideas/work as a codebreaker. It goes far back into his past to try and explain how and why he ended up the way he did. It makes for quite sad reading knowing the tragedy of his death in the end, but it proved to be a fascinating account of Turing's many achievements.
