Only interesting to the Turing specialists
on 21 March 2015
There is so much that is interesting about Alan Turing; his contribution to computing, his contribution to mathematical logic, his contribution to winning WW2, his appalling treatment by the British state following this. Sadly, this book doesn't really engage with any of these topics, and deals instead with rather more mundane matters like what Alan's school reports were like (frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn). This is valuable source material for someone writing a Turing biography, but not worth reading otherwise.
