reviewf Ninth House and made it seem like a boring read all about how transistors are made It seemed funny at the time but it was entirely misleading This book was not boring at all In fact I would say some chapters were difficult to put downThe Innovators is NOT a comprehensive history The Great Railway Bazaar of all computer and Internet related technology I feel the need to stress that now It takes a very specific route from Charles Babbage to Google by wayf Turing Hopper and Berners Lee a route which is about showing I loved Isaacson s Benjamin Franklin and Steve Jobs biographies I really really wanted to love this Rue Marquis De Sade one In a sense this book is at least a four star book because Isaacson wants to prove a point and he succeeds none person invented the computer Five
