From the reviews:

"I read this book with great interest. It contains information about the history of computer science which is not normally available in such concise form, and in a style suitable for the broader public." (Niklaus Wirth, ETH Zürich)

"The computing and historical communities are very fortunate to have this perspective on the origins of the computing field from one of the great minds from the beginning of the modern computing era." (William Aspray, University of Texas at Austin)

“This treatment of the history of computing follows the historical path of computing as it originated in mathematics and logic and progressed into machine design and programming languages. … Any individual involved in computing will want to complete this easy read. … The numerous pictures and figures are appealing and draw the reader along from page to page. The book ends with a ‘Selected Readings’ section for readers who want a more detailed exploration of this rich history. I recommend this book.” (Brad Reid, ACM Computing Reviews, November, 2010)
