Editorial Reviews


Gordon Moore made a prediction forty years ago that was partly prescient and partly prescriptive. The fulfillment of his prediction has restructured the global nature of human society, the way we work, oursource, wage war, communicate, politicize, socialize, and even love. What a treat, then, to have in a single volume both his original publication and his analysis forty years later of how the fulfillment came about. -- Rodney Brooks, Director, MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory

Important Insights into Moore's Law--the metric of our age. -- Carver Mead, Recipient, 2002 National Medal of Technology

Looking back today, Moore and other information revolution pioneers, who contributed to this clearly written volume, realize that Moore's law applies not simply to electronics but generally to technological change in our era. -- Thomas Hughes, Author of ‘Human-Built World' and ‘American Genesis'

Required Reading. -- Craig Barrett, Chairman, Intel Corporation

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A fascinating read and well worth having on one's bookshelf. Gordon Moore's prediction related to the new technology emerging so many decades ago continues to intrigue those who work in the field. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the completed manuscript. Mr. Brock has created a valuable book related to this important subject.
