Notes:
This is the previously untold - and highly classified - story of the melding of technology and espionage. Gordon Corera's compelling narrative takes us from the Second World War through the Cold War and the birth of the internet to the present era of hackers and surveillance. Rich with historical detail and characters, as well as astonishing revelations about espionage carried out in recent times by the UK, US and China, this is the secret history of how spying drove the rise of the computer.

Fascinating, detailed and surprising! It is a tough read at times. But well worth it. Even though I spent my entire career in IT and about 20 years in IT security, I learned quite a few interesting things that I did not know about. Bob W. Lichfield
