Customer Review

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 30 August 2018
I am just starting out on a career in IT, and this book gives a really insightful and entertaining account of the history of computer programming, as well as the author’s personal journey as a computer programmer from the 70s through to the 2000s.

The author makes the subject come alive with a naturally amusing story-telling style, and with references to popular culture and its links to advances in technology. I’d definitely recommend this to seasoned programmers as well as people just starting out in the IT sector interested in understanding how it all began!
