The Soul of a New Machine

The Soul of a New Machine

The revolution started here. This 1981 account of an engineering team putting it all on the line to build a new computer is surely the first computer book ever to win a Pulitzer Prize. A huge chunk of the way we live today can be traced back to the geeky godheads whose tireless tech innovations are chronicled here by Tracy Kidder. In order to build a better mousetrap in terms of what was then widely known as the minicomputer — still a behemoth even compared to today's biggest laptops — a group of inspired information architects put every ounce of themselves into advancing computer technology. It's that human element that gives The Soul of a New Machine its title and makes Kidder's account endlessly relevant.
