4.0 out of 5 stars Tells the story very well, 25 Nov 2004
This review is from: A Brief History of the Future: Origins of the Internet (Paperback)
Going from the origins of computing (those that would later impact on the Web), through to the Microsoft v Netscape battle of the mid-late '90s, Naughton tells the story very well. Given the potential for the subject to be dry and "techy", Naughton kept the attention of this reader (interested non-techy).
I knocked off a star as I felt the glossary was not full enough. Around the middle of the book I was drowning in acronyms which were explained once in the text, but not in the glossary. However, the author's enthusiasm for the subject carried me through.
May be due for updating soon?
