Computers have changed since 1981, when Tracy Kidder memorably recorded the drama, comedy, and excitement of one companys efforts to bring a new microcomputer to market. What has not changed is the feverish pace of the high-tech industry, 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. The Soul of a New Machine is an essential chapter in the history of the machine that revolutionized the world in the twentieth century. 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.
