Some brief overview of this book

Computers have changed since 1981, when Tracy Kidder indelibly recorded the drama, comedy, and excitement of one companys efforts to bring a new microcomputer to market. What has changed little, however, is computer culture: the feverish pace of the high-tech industry, the mystique of programmers, the go-for-broke approach to business that has caused so many computer companies to win big (or go belly up), and the cult of pursuing mind-bending technological innovations. By tracing computer culture to its roots, by exploring the soul of the machine that has revolutionized the world, Kidder succeeds as no other writer has done in capturing the essential spirit of the computer age.

Data General was in danger of losing its edge in the high technology war. Thirty wiz kids — design engineers — were given the job of building a computer more advanced than anything that then existed — and under an absolutely impossible deadline. A Pulitzer Prize-winner from Tracy Kidder.
