    DescriptionWhat do flashlights, the British invasion, black cats, and seesaws have to do with computers? In CODE, they show us the ingenious ways we manipulate language and invent new means of communicating with each other. And through CODE, we see how this ingenuity and our very human compulsion to communicate have driven the technological innovations of the past two centuries. Using everyday objects and familiar language systems such as Braille and Morse code, author Charles Petzold weaves an illuminating narrative for anyone who's ever wondered about the secret inner life of computers and other smart machines. It's a cleverly illustrated and eminently comprehensible story-and along the way, you'll discover you've gained a real context for understanding today's world of PCs, digital media, and the Internet. No matter what your level of technical savvy, CODE will charm you-and perhaps even awaken the technophile within.

    Very easy and fun5

    Denis Gulak This book is rather for those how are aware of terms "codes", "electricity", "binary", but who lacks and want to build a systematic picture of how computer performs what it performs and how the preceding history was made. It is very easy to follow with this book. There are plenty of interesting historical facts too along many of the themes and chapters. I would suggest that experienced IT-person (like software developer, etc) could read and treat it as a good and interesting fiction ( art ) book. However it`s aimed on IT beginners. by Denis Gulak
