Recommends it for: PC antiquaries
Recommended to Erik by: Joe Ronne
Shelves: sciences
Being poor, I taught myself how to assemble and repair PCs with the aid of this book and others, obtaining parts from computer discards. Among the books referred to for these purposes, this was the best in those years.
Several parts of this book are repetitious. It seems after 18 editions they'd eventually figure out that two subsequent paragraphs sometimes contain the exact same sentence. Otherwise it's an impressive volume of PC knowledge.
This is definitely designed as a reference book, but it does offer some nice overviews and analogies that can aid in true comprehension of otherwise complex systems.
Lots of info about computer hardware technology, but some is difficult to understand without college computer courses or a certification.
This book is very much informative, especially for curious minds, who want to explore the real inner working of computer
Very good resource. Packed with information. If you work on PCs, you should have this on your shelf.

This book taught me a lot about hardware and developmental history of computer.
