From Library Journal:

This is a positive, readable book about computers and people, not as in Sherry Turkle's best-selling The Second Self ( LJ 6/15/84), but told historically, and through anecdote. The author, a Nobel Prize winner and Bell Labs vice president, reveals the most through the insightful and diverse examples he gives. He talks about the computer's origins, workings, applications, limitations, management, artifical intelligence, and super capabilities. Penzias emphasizes that "the world's most powerful information tool will continue to be the human mind." This is a rare title to be enjoyed by the technical and nontechnical reader alike.
