The Soul of a New Machine - Tracy Kidder I read this back when it was current, and I was programming at the time on a Data General MV6000, so it was really fascinating to me how that series was made. I enjoyed the book immensely, and found it a fun read, a page turner. It was nice that Tracy seemed to learn enough about the whole process, the technology and the project, that he really understood what was going on. I think a lot of journalist types wouldn't have managed that. They would have made a lot of vague statements in their books talking about technical things with not enough detail for you to figure out what they were trying to say, and that would have been maddening. Tracy seems to grasp fully subjects like science, technology, and medicine, so he's wonderful to read on these subjects.
