Wow, what a great book. Light reading for a Sunday morning - so good I couldn't put it down. From an explanation of how the Microsoft Windows start-up tune was invented to Dominos Pizza doing marketing research by collecting tons of crumbs from computer keyboards. This is a fascinating book. I really couldn't put it down once I got started. I fully expect to see the author on David Letterman someday. And we'll certainly be hearing some of these stories copied in speeches and articles for some time to come. Highly recommended.

Mr. Kirksey has definitely captured the essence of what makes computing entertaining! I'm sure everyone has heard a few of these computer myths and legends -- but Kirk Kirksey tells the "rest of the story." A must read. I borrowed the book and read it on a cross-country airline trip -- liked it so much, I had to buy it!

Very unusual. A must if computers ever get you down (they really are stupid machines). Brainy and well written.
