1. He gives you real technical understanding
2. He is easy to understand, even for someone with no technical background
This is my go to recommendation when someone asks how they can learn more about the technologies that govern our lives. We run our lives online these days, so the kind of overview D is for Digital provides is more important than ever.
p.s. Code by Charles Petzold is a great companion to this book. Read both books and you'll know more about computing than most people.
I enjoyed this book because the author wrote about technical details and and explained them in layman's terms with a sprinkle of humor.
