Format: Paperback
This was one of the first books related to computers, much less Artificial Intelligence, that I ever read. It's excellent. Interesting story, personal drama, technical details, a precocious teen tied in just enough to not make it all about him, espionage, etc. And let's not forget Ariel herself... an AI that makes you WANT AI NOW.

I have gone thru 3 copies of the paperback edition of this book, and probably re-read it over 200 times in the 25+ years since I first received it. I can't say enough about it, grab a copy for yourself and your own children, and let them wonder what would make AI possible.

Every time I finish this book, I'm smiling.

This obscure work was the first book I ever read about Artificial Intelligence. I was enthralled. As a child just on the cutting edge of the computer generation explosion this book captured my attention and held it throughout. I'm surprised that this book is not more well known. It's well written, factual (for the time), emotive, and just a great story!
