BOOK REVIEW The Other Computer History Hans Bodmer THE REAL STORY

While the world revels in the myth of Steve Jobs and Bill Gates starting the computer revolution in a garage, the real story goes back much further. Hans Bodmer’s book documents the computer age as he experienced it. Beginning with the punch card, an era most of today’s computer students would not even begin to understand, Bodmer explains his way through the actual history of computers. Via personal recollections, quotes from people like Seymore Cray, and assignments at places like CERN, Switzerland and Sunnyvale, California. Bodmer’s reminiscences add color and depth to the story and he has happily shared it with all of us.
