Recommends it for: Computer newbies, non computer folks in the computer business
Shelves: computer
Great book for people who are not computer folks. I used this book for a graduate course I taught on how to start and run computer companies. The business people learned something about technology and the computer people learned something about business from this book. It is a good casual read. The title chapter is the true story of how a moth got caught in the switches of one of the early computers and became the namesake of computer "bugs."
