Superb! An insight written largely by his mother. Hence it contained a 'Mother's love and tenderness'. A more personal insight than the 'clinical tomes' in scientifically based writings. This book also casts doubt upon whether his death by cyanide poisoning was really suicide - maybe a terrible accident by someone who could be a bit careless at time!

the book has a reasonable price, it arrived in an excellent condition and in time; the book was sold at the London Science Museum when there was the Alan Turing exhibition in 2013 and I didn't buy it then because I was in a hurry, it is good in itself but also a fine souvenir from that excellent exhibition

A fascinating read and insight into someone who was immensely influential in the development of computer computation. It is a useful primer for Andrew Hodges biography Alan Turing: An Enigma.

A very succinct biography, albeit by his mother, who is factual, without being judgemental.

Most excellent to see a reprinting of the original book by Alan Turing's mother Sara Turing. Well worth a read by anyone interested in knowing a little more about this enigmantic Scientist.

This is Alan Turing's mother's biography of her son, seen through rather rose coloured spectacles, interesting to read about 1920's and 1930's family life,
