Behind Deep Blue: Building the Computer that Defea&hellip by Feng-Hsiung Hsu

This is an excellent read. The techie bits are not boring - the author's enthusiasm for the development of Deep Blue and its predecessors is catching. Even more enjoyable are the stories about the individuals involved - and their egos. The second half of the book concentrates on the Kasparov vs Deep Blue matches and its gripping stuff - I couldn't put it down. Kasparov seemed to get all the coverage after the matches so it is good to get the other side of the story. And it is enlightening and surprising. A great read. Buy it. You'll love it.
