The Man Who Knew Too Much: Alan Turing and the Invention of the Computer (Great Discoveries)

The Man Who Knew Too Much: Alan Turing and the Invention of the Computer (Great Discoveries) - David Leavitt Reviews are, of course, subjective. So, when I give it three stars, it is mostly because I don't feel I was the right audience for this book, and not because I think it was inherently bad. One who really has a fascination with mathematics and/or the development of computers would probably really enjoy this book. Nevertheless, I did find some of it to be interesting, especially the section on cryptanalysis and cracking the Enigma code in World War II, as well as his view of artificial intelligence.
