Read from May 21 to June 05, 2012 — I own a copy

What an amazing read. I picked up this book out of the sheer interest of learning about the origins of networking, namely the ARPANET and the Internet.

It never occurred to me that this could be so catching and interesting. The authors made an incredible work of research (just check the size of the bibliography section) and made such a work writing it all down in about 300 pages.

From the creation of the ARPA (Advanced Research Projects Agency) to the creation of the World Wide Web, not forgetting everyone involved in it, this is a great story.
