Originally published in 1974, this book just gets better with age. I've had my dogeared copy since 1987 which should explain a lot.

Once upon a time, there was a visionary computer pioneer named Ted Nelson. He envisioned hyptertext (like the Web's links) years before it happened. In fact, his version is still better than anything that exists today.
He was one of the first to see that personal computers really would change the world in education, commerce, and personal expression. His self-published book 'Computer Lib/Dream Machines' reads today like a combination of fulfilled prophecy and far-off speculation.
A seminal work in personal computer writing. A gift from my friend Jeff, and one of my most prized possessions. I even purchased the later, smaller-format updated edition (Microsoft Press, 1987) just to keep from wearing out my original. ( )
