The people in our Lisp language class got to meet and go to lunch with him. I was impressed with his reasonableness.

It will still be read half a century from now (1975), as a landmark in the integration of scientific and humanistic thinking. Lewis Mumford

One of the seminal books on computing and its limitations. A must-read for anyone interested in Artificial Intelligence, though it will probably be rejected by todays programmers and software engineers who have noteable hubris issues. Some of the technical sections may be tough sledding for those not familiar with computation, but nothing here is beyond the reach of logic, patience and curiousity. Read, ponder, and enjoy. ( )
