Sinopsis:

"A book not to be missed, just plain good reading about the drama of the Kids next door turning their dreams into millions."--The New York Times"Swaine and Freiberger capture the communal spirit of the early computer clubs, the brilliance and blundering of some of the first start-up companies, the assortment of naivete, noble purpose and greed that characterized various pioneers, and the inevitable transformation of all this into a major industry. Must reading."--Philip Lemmons, editor-in-chief, BYTE Magazine

Sinopsis:

This text covers the birth of the personal computer. It includes more photographs than the previous editions, and comments and quotes from some of the key players from that time looking back on their parts in hindsight.
