Excellent work! Concise, easy to read with difficult concepts made understandable. Fills in the missing information from the movie, "The Imitation Game," and amplifies the true genius of an unsung World War II hero.

I was captivated by this story. I only wish the movie "The Imatation Game" had focused more on Allen Turing's process of developing the computer, his sources of inspiration, like this book did. It is now known that Asbergers or Autism Spectrum Disorders are often associated with homosexuality. No wonder so many brilliant minds are gay. The end of the book asks the question what more could Turing have done to help the world if government had stayed out of his bedroom (not in those words). That question is still relevant today.
