The Universal Machine Kindle Edition - a perfect Christmas gift

Buy on Amazon

The Kindle edition of the Universal Machine is out in time for Christmas. It would make the perfect Christmas gift for that relative whom you never know what to buy. Anyone with any interest in computers will love to receive this - honest. Don't just take my word for it, here are what some reviewers have said:
    The Universal Machine is a great way to get a real feel for where the machines that are at the centre of so many of our lives came from. 4 stars -
    There is something in here for anyone who has the vaguest interest in a history of computers including the internet, some of the major pioneers and some of the companies that have risen (and in some cases, fallen) along the way.  8/10 - British Computer Society
     It's accessible and readable even to non-geeky types, written as it is in an easy-going and engaging style. At the same time, it's also an enjoyable read for hard-core techies: you'll almost certainly keep running into computers and engineers you haven't heard of before - a fascinating history of computers and computer scientists - NakedSecurity
  I really enjoyed this book. It's very informative, well written and very easy to read. I look at my computer now in a whole new light. 5 stars - Amazon review
