Alan Turing : The Life of a Genius, Paperback / softback Book

Alan Turing : The Life of a Genius Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Alan Turing was an extraordinary man who crammed into a life of only 42 years the careers of mathematician, codebreaker, computer scientist and biologist.

His codebreaking work at Bletchley Park was so significant it helped to shorten the Second World War, and with Tommy Flowers he built the first computer.

A man ahead of his time, many of his theories and calculations are still relevant today.

Often believed to be an eccentric loner, recent research by his nephew, Dermot Turing, has unearthed a fresh perspective, and here his story is condensed into a short, accessible Pitkin guide.
