We all stand—or sit as heirs to the digital revolution, but how many of us know much about its origins? Having already successfully biographed Steve Jobs, Einstein, and Benjamin Franklin, the multitalented Walter Isaacson now dexterously takes on the stories of the trailblazers who made the computer and the internet possible. The roster includes inevitable subjects such as Charles Babbage, Alan Turing, Jobs, and Bill Gates, but also lesser known contributors including hackers and, surprisingly enough, Lord Byron's daughter Ada Lovelace. Watch for front page reviews and media buzz.
