1.0 out of 5 stars Pointless violence. Tedious hopeless pshchotics posing as characters., February 16, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Pyramid Lake (Kindle Edition)
The book might be interest (or amusement) to readers who have worked for the DOD, Homeland Security, or NSA, but I think the excessive violence and the psychotic combination of James Bond and Alan Turing as the main character was too much.

4.0 out of 5 stars Out of date but good insight, May 29, 2013

Lots of insight into Babbage, particularly the analytic engine. Unfortunately written before London Museum of Science constructed a realization of Babbage's Difference Engine #2.

5.0 out of 5 stars Turing's Cathedral and the IAS, April 16, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Turing's Cathedral is about the Princeton Institute for Advanced Study. The IAS involved almost every great mathematician scientist physicist of the 20th century. The book contains an outside Los Alamos story of the atomic bomb development, the hydrogen bomb development, and the impact it had on its architects. The central figure is John von Neumann, particularly but not exclusively his influence on the development of digital computer architectures, which Dyson says have not changed much to this day. Dyson's research notes for the book occupies more than than 20% of the volume. It a must read for anyone interested in the wartime development of technology, science, and particularly computers from the perspective of major contributors at all levels.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Timely and Moving Book, December 1, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book is a must read for every citizen who wants an objective understanding of what has been happening to our our country politically and economically. It is a rich source of global and local economic trends since World War II. Sachs articulates the strength and weaknesses of capitalism. He introduces a universal non religious moral imperative to temper the failings a Laissez Faire Capitalism without compromising its efficiency. He presents a plan to bring government spending under control in a way that reverses the series deficiencies in our own government programs for health, education, infrastructure, and the environment. In his words, good government must be fair, efficient, and sustainable. The United States is failing in all three categories, but there is hope.
