Book Review – The Innovators

The InnovatorsThe Innovators: How a Group of Hackers, Geniuses, and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution by Walter Isaacson

What would your life be today without computers or the Internet? Whether on a desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile phone, you are almost certainly reading this review on a computer hooked up to the magnificent network we call the Internet. Walter Isaacson weaves together a history of the men, women and machines that created the digital revolution and changed the course of human interaction. From Ada Lovelace and Alan Turing to Bill Gates and Tim Berners-Lee, Isaacson presents a story of creative geniuses and creative collaborations that led to the modern digital age. Peppered with photos of people and technology, the book feels like a living narrative rather than a dry history. Isaacson has written a seminal work for anyone interested in some of the most important advances in the course of human events and how the computer became ubiquitous in our lives.
