Reviews

Here is a book to answer the question of how computers work for those without knowledge of digital or logic circuts, computer structure, or programming. An excellent text for undergraduates in electronic engineering or computer science, it will also be extremely useful to those who want to learn about computer architecture. - Optics and Photonics News, March 2004
