Customer Review

on 16 November 2013
Once upon a time, when I was a programmer, someone I worked with told me about Ada Lovelace. Since then I have read a lot about her, mostly in fragments here and there, but until now I haven't found a book that captured the whole story, both good and bad.
This book does it all. It is fabulously well researched and the story very well told.
James Essinger manages to capture Ada's spirit as well as her genius and incorporate everything in a beautifully produced book. This is not only an excellent biography about a wonderful woman but also the best biography I read in the past few years.
