Nominated for the 2014 National Book Award for Nonfiction, Walter Isaacson's follow-up to his hugely popular biography of Steve Jobs illuminates how the collaborative spirit of inventors and innovators—more so than individual inspiration—made the creation of digital information and the Internet possible. He introduces us to Ada Lovelace, Lord Byron's daughter, who pioneered computer programming in the 1840s, as well as to Alan Turing, Robert Noyce, Bill Gates, Steve Wozniak, Steve Jobs, Tim Berners-Lee, Larry Page, and other pioneers, considering not only how their minds worked and what made them so inventive, but also how their ability to collaborate made them even more creative.
