The Annotated Turing

Based on Bob Martin’s recommendation in his Clean Coder’s webcast, I picked up The Annotated Turing by Charles Petzold.

What a fun read!  Petzold really does a good job of breaking down the original paper into manageable chunks – and gives just enough background to place the paper’s ideas in context.  I really had fun digging though my gray cells of the difference among the different kids of numbers (real, imaginary, etc…) .  I am about half way through the book  and I plan to re-read it once I finish it.  If you work in IT for a living, this is worth a read – and re-read….
