The birth of modern computers: Xerox PARC, Star, and Apple.

"This is the first book I’ve seen take on modern technology through the lens of historical fiction. I would absolutely recommend it to academics and geeks and just anyone looking to expand their minds. What a gift!"

Charles Edge, of The History of Computing podcast

"I worked at Xerox SDD in Palo Alto from late 1976 to spring 1981. The book captures the spirit of a relatively small group ... building a revolutionary new product. Seeing and using the Alto from Xerox PARC was to see and feel the future. "

Paul McJones, Xerox operating system architect
