Alan Turing: The Enigma Man Reviews
While I have heard of Alan Turing in connection with breaking the Enigma code, I have not seen any TV programs or movies on the subject, so I found this book very elucidating and interesting.
It was a little difficult to get through because there was a lot of computer references that went straight over my average-Joe brain, but I still enjoyed it.
Good description of Turing's work on the machines that helped break the German Machine codes in WWII. Turing's first work on the idea of a logic machine as a solution to a mathematical theorem led to not only this, but also the machines that became the modern computers.
The engineering and mathematical history of the birth and growth of computers Is thorough. It is more involved than I had imagined. Far too much content concerns his private sexual habits. That is of no interest to me, nor most in the field?
A great story about a wonderfully intellectual man who gave his all and was persecuted by archaic laws and attitudes.
A short but informative book that contains some details I was not aware of before. I recommend it/
Great mind destroyed by the morals of the time.
Very easy to read and informative. Liked the book. Explained a bit more of the actual encryption and decoding than the current movie did, also how he died. Very very nicely written
