Messy. There are many great tidbits and anecdotes here, and some observations and turns of phrase are classic, ultra-clever, top-notch Dyson. However, the overall structure is a giant random pile of mess where little unimportant factoids get as much spotlight as crucial events. The book has little to do with Turing, and it’s often hard to know what it really is about, since the introduction is as short as the following narrative is loose and rambling. Overall, quite a bit of a disappointment.
