's review

it was amazing

(I had to enter this book so apologize now for errors. I was surprised Goodreads didn't have it).
This was the first recognizable "Man v Machine" book I read. I probably read others before this but this one came to me when I was working at MIT's Lincoln Labs, specifically on what was a supercomputer on the early 1970s.
I knew that nothing like Colossus was doable at the time. Then I read about the Iliacs. So many variations of this story have come down through the years; the Terminator franchise, Michael Crichton's Terminal Man and others.
I doubt the story would hold up today and I do remember that the storytelling kept me going even though I was sure (I was, I swear) that nothing like this could happen.
