This is the book to read when you grow tired of computer commerce and yearn to hear about the good old days of computer science, when engineers encountered the fundamental problems of automation and solved them... or didn't solve them, in some cases, but assembled bright crews of interesting thinkers to take a crack at it. This book gave me exactly what I wanted: a personal story of the personal computer before it was ready to hit the shelves.
