Summaries and Reviews
Summary
A Pulitzer Prize-winning study of the evolution of modern technology and its influence offers a behind the scenes look at the high technology computer industry, observing a crash program to develop a highly complicated machine and the people involved in this competitive business. Reprint.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: 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.
