I found this book to be the most enjoyable way to read a scientific paper ever. The way the book is structured is just excellent: Historical context provided but optional, scary maths not simplified but explained and also optional. On top of that, the writing is very accessible and nice to read.

The only problem I had in reading this was not so much to do with Petzold (or Turing) but with the logical syntax and the way it is presented. There is such a sheer amount of symbols in this paper that even to someone used to the syntax, the formulas towards the end of the paper become borderline unreadable without a legend. The finishing touch to this book would be to provide some sort of system that would make this more "reading-material" than "study-material".

Nevertheless, this was an exellent book and I think this kind of text is how fundamental research should be presented much more often.

I really wanted to like this book more than I did. The difficultly of chapters varied so widely that I went from feeling talked down to, to where I thought "Wow! I always wondered how that worked", to "Whu? This doesn't make any sense-- this is so over my head". The harder parts should have been more like a text book and less like a pop-science book (or omitted for being more than can be absorbed while reading a armchair pop-science book).

That was a lot of fun to read, for me at least. I already knew most of what was in the book, from several college classes (digital circuits, digital devices, etc) and from a career in computers, but it was nice to see it all laid out together. Of course a little dated, but the fundamentals are all there.

This is a great book for anyone wanting to learn how computers work. It starts with turning a light on and off as a code, and ends with multimedia computer systems. Even electrical engineers will enjoy this review of the basics of computer science and architecture, as it includes historical facts they might not have known.
