Understanding the digital world: what you need to know about computers, the Internet, privacy, and security, by Brian W. Kernighan
April 27, 2017
"Understanding the DigitalWorld" is a must-read for all who want to know more about computers and communications. It explains, precisely and carefully, not only how they operate but also how they influence our daily lives, in terms anyone can understand, no matter what their experience and knowledge of technology. Kernighan’s credentials as a computer scientist are stellar but what comes through in this book is a humanitarian concern about the place of technology in the modern world.
