Not bad. A bit repetitive and disorganized. Feels a little like the writer wanted to be like Brunvand just with computer stuff, humor, and no research. Still a fast read and has a few stories I haven't heard before. I get the feeling I've read better books, but if you want chuckle this might not be bad. Or you could just read the jargon file. It is good that unlike some books it tends to have an outsider perspective, not the insider perspective that many programmer jokes center around.

Written in 1990, this is now somewhat dated, but it provides some interesting tales of the early days of computers. It's obvious that Jennings put a lot of work into collecting these stories. ( )
