Good detailed account of Turing. One could be a little put off by some of the technical explanations which I found hard to grasp. However, to be a true account of his life and work, such is inevitable or you could buy a shorter account which would not do justice to the subject. Am half way through and enjoying the war stories and accounts of individuals some of whom I knew slightly.
