The Soul of a New Machine

Tracy Kidder's The Soul of a New Machine, the compelling account of the inventors of a new mini-supercomputer for the young Data General company, is the best chronicle of the computer age and the extraordinary people who have created it. A compelling account of individual sacrifice and ingenuity, it became an instant classic on publication and won a Pulitzer Prize. The Wall Street Journal described it as "fascinating" and "provocative", and The New York Times Book Review praised its "high level of narrative art". This Modern Library edition includes a new introduction by Tracy Kidder. Copyright © Libri GmbH. All rights reserved.
