New Book Alert – The New Turing Omnibus by A.K.Dewdney

66 EXCURSIONS IN COMPUTER SCIENCE

After a week of reading this book, it is safe to say that this is the most comprehensive book on Computer Science that I have ever come across. Covering thoroughly 66 topics spanning 12 areas of computer theory, this book doesn’t leave you short of things to read. The annoying thing about this book is reading through the contents and being spoilt for choice for where to start, leaving me to resort to choosing a random number between 1 and 66 and reading the topic. One area of theory that has taken my interest particularly are the chapters on Artificial Intelligence, topics such as neural networks and perceptrons providing an especially good read.

I can safely say I side with the critics as the Dewdney successfully delivers 66 concise discussions on areas of computer theory in order to spark an interest into further reading.

If you are at all interested in any part of Computer Science, whether it be Cryptology or Complexity Theory, BUY THIS BOOK!
