Hodges examined available primary sources and interviewed surviving witnesses to elucidate Turing's multiple dimensions. It will then be reviewed by Lulu Staff to determine the next course of action. This acclaimed biography of the founder of computer science, with a new preface by the author that addresses Turing's royal pardon in , is the definitive account of an extraordinary mind and life.

Capturing both the inner and outer drama of Turing's life, Andrew Hodges tells how Turing's revolutionary idea of the concept of a universal machine--laid the foundation for the modern computer and how Turing brought the idea to practical realization in with his electronic design. A mathematician, Hodges ably explained Turing's intellectual accomplishments with insight, and situated them within their wider historical contexts.

Capturing both the inner and outer drama of Turing's life, Andrew Hodges tells how Turing's revolutionary idea of —the concept of a universal machine—laid the foundation for the modern computer and how Turing brought the idea to practical realization in with his electronic design. The inspiration for a major motion picture starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley, Alan Turing: The Enigma is a gripping story of mathematics, computers, cryptography, and homosexual persecution.

Perceptive and absorbing, Andrew Hodges's book is scientific biography at its best.

Written by a mathematician, it describes in plain language Turing's work on the foundations of computer science and how he broke the Germans' Enigma code in the Second World War.

The subtle depiction of class rivalries, personal relationships, and Turing's tragic end are worthy of a novel.
