Both engaging and accessible, Turing and the Computer pays homage to the extraordinary life and work of an intense and emotional man who struggled with discrimination from his peers and family, helped break the Enigma codes to win World War II, and invented the world's first computer...before being largely forgotten by the world.
The Big Idea series is a fascinating look at the greatest advances in our scientific history, and at the men and women who made these fundamental breakthroughs.

This short book lets the fascinating story of a brilliant and hyper-influential thinker shine through without much interference. After a slightly laboured but interesting enough sprint through the history of computing to the twentieth century, Turing's story is largely given a platform to speak for itself. That story could not fail to make for a interesting read.
