First published in the 1980s, this Pulitzer Prize-winning story of 30 whiz kids at Data General and their herculean efforts to create a groundbreaking supercomputer still holds tremendous pertinence in today's e-dominated society.

The New York Times - Christopher Lehmann-Haupt

All of Mr. Kidder's hopes for his book have been fulfilled. It does give us a vivid picture of the computer business. . . . But I have to emphasize that what I admired most about such parts of The Soul of a New Machine was the simply but gratifying fact that I understood them.
