Legendary historian and philosopher of science George Dyson vividly re-creates the scenes of focused experimentation, incredible mathematical insight, and pure creative genius that gave us computers, digital television, modern genetics, models of stellar evolution--in other words, computer code. He focuses on a small group of men and women, led by John von Newmann at the Institute for Advanced study in Princeton, New Jersey, who built one of the first computers to realize Alan Turing's vision of a Universal Machine.
