History of computing books by Emerson Pugh, either alone or with others are always excellent. Well researched, factual, but ... they tell stories of the history, from the viewpoints of many participants.

This book is unusual, in that it focuses on a technology area, memory, which was/is so fundamental to computing that most people in the field have trouble seeing it.

Excellent read, I get more out of it each time I read it.
