Computers are such an important part of our everyday lives... but how much do you really know about them?
How does code work? Who invented the internet? This endlessly fascinating book not only explores the science behind information technology, but reveals the true-life stories of the people behind the scenes who played important roles in forging this radical transformation in human culture.
