Format: Paperback
People who want to learn the big picture of the information age without digging to deep with technical details will enjoy this book. The book describes basic concepts of computers and their role in the information age. Plenty of good illustrations and the text is easy to read. Used for intro to computer science classes. However, 3 starts comes from the price vs value of content. Books that are required by schools tend to cost more.

Capron never sought or obtained permission from the artists who's work he included in his book.
