This article first appeared in Scientific American in October 2014.
This week, the new Walter Isaacson book, The Innovators: How a Group of Hackers, Geniuses, and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution has been released. I am a fan of his writing, having enjoyed many of his books, and not surprisingly enthusiastically consumed Einstein: His Life and Universe (2007) and Steve Jobs (2011).
A trend I am heartily behind is that of publishers creating book trailers. Simon and Schuster have generously created five videos for Isaacson’s new book. I wanted to ensure you could see all of them, so here they are!
The Unsung Heroes of the Digital Revolution
History in Five: The Creation of the Computer
How Collaborative Genius Drives Innovation
The Invention of Video Games
Women of the Digital Age
I haven’t yet read this book yet, but given the high quality of his past books, I expect it will be of the same caliber and I encourage you to get your own copy right away!
