The Soul of a New Machineby Tracy Kidder
Synopses & Reviews
Computers have changed since 1981, when Tracy Kidder memorably recorded the drama, comedy, and excitement of one companys efforts to bring a new microcomputer to market. What has not changed is the feverish pace of the high-tech industry, the go-for-broke approach to business that has caused so many computer companies to win big (or go belly up), and the cult of pursuing mind-bending technological innovations. The Soul of a New Machine is an essential chapter in the history of the machine that revolutionized the world in the twentieth century.
A new trade paperback edition has been issued of a nonfiction modern classic--the Pulitzer Prize-winning work that, more than any other book, captures the essential spirit of the computer age. "Fascinating. . . . A surprisingly gripping account of people at work".--"The Wall Street Journal".
