It is hard to imagine the modern world without information technology. At home, at work, and at play, mobile phones, emails and computers have become part of daily life. The story of information technology is a story of machines - from the ancient abacus to the small powerful computer chips of today. But it is also a story of people. Meet a woman who wrote computer programs two hundred years ago, a teenage millionaire, a man who began with a paperclip and ended with a house - and the criminals who want your name and your money. Come and discover the world of information technology.

Just a thin book but it gets through almost all the main developments in computing, from the ancient abacus to the small and powerful computer which you can put it in your pocket or wear it like a wrist watch. It also contains the stories of those who were successful or even jailed due to the dissemination of the Internet.

My favorite quote: "It is really difficult to make predictions about the future of computing: the future is often closer than you think it is. It is true! 50 years ago (before the Internet was born) even the most optimistic person could not affirm that just half a century later, computers would be so popular and totally change the world. Now, I can say computer is an indispensable part of human's life, at least to me. Hardly a day go by without me using my computer, haha ^^
