Excellent text for an introduction to computer technology.
I have used the last three editions of this book and been impressed with the author's willingness to revise and upgrade it as the technology evolves and progresses. Despite a wide range of backgrounds and abilities, my students have been almost universally complimentary about it's value. The auxillary material offered online is excellent, aiding the beginners while still providing a challenge or two for the semi-experts bent on validating their knowledge.
The illustrations support the text very well, and the material covers a great deal of ground from the history of computing to the propagation of the Internet. This is an excellent introductory book, very well written.

It is comprahesive and humanistic.
Usually a computer manual would bore the reader to death with its technicalities. This book isn't the case. Although it comprehends a great deal of technical aspects it focuses on the humanistic and ethical aspects of the technology as well. It also discusses both the technology past and its future.

Should be called Computers of your past, Badly written
Blah, Blah Blah, This book is far too wordy. Would make anyone who knew the slightest about computers fall asleep, Dull! Would hate for a newbie to pick up this book, would make you fear computing. Alot of info prestented is out dated and sometimes down right WRONG! Best thing to do with this book is put it by your bed and if you can't sleep read a paragraph and you'll be fast asleep.
