This was an excellent book to read. Charlene Billings did a great job at writing this book. I liked the way she stuck with only the important events of Grace Hopper¿s life instead of so much details that I know what they had for breakfast on day-to-day bases. She also did an amazing job at making simple, even mundane everyday experiences seem like major life dictators for Grace Hopper¿s future. For me I liked this book because it was short and to the point. I would recommend this book for people who would want an easy read for a school report. It is also great book for people who are interested in Grace Hopper or are just curious about what she contributed to the world of computers, but don¿t want to read an extensive biography of her life. I would not, however, recommend this book for people who want an extensively detailed account of Grace Hopper because they will probably be very disappointed. This is also not a book for someone who is hopping for a lot of details on the computer that Grace Hopper helped build.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
