Few books have had as lasting an impact or played as important a role in our modern world as The Mathematical Theory of Communication. Claude Shannon's major precept, that all communication is essentially digital, is now so commonplace among the modern digitalia that many wonder why Shannon needed to state such an obvious axiom.
