The UC Berkeley Summer Reading List is an annual compilation of recommended (though not required) readings suggested by Cal faculty, staff, and students as a welcome to incoming freshmen and transfer students.
Before Page, Brin, Jobs, and Gates, there were many others whose innovations helped to shape our highly technologized world. Isaacson takes us on a 150-plus-year trip through new computational concepts and ways to apply them through physical devices where nobody can really claim center stage because it’s a collective contribution that has made it all possible.
You can tell that I liked the book 🙂
