Summer Reading List: The Innovators

The Innovators

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.

The Innovators: How a Group of Inventors, Hackers, Geniuses, and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution

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 🙂
