Code: The Hidden Language of Computer Hardware and Software

Wow. I wish I had read this book back when I was in college as it was much more interesting / easy to read than my college text books.

It carries you along from the very fundamentals of both codes (like braille) and electric circuits in the telegraph days all the way to the web, with plenty of verbal and diagrammatic explanation.

I really appreciated the author’s efforts to provide such an exhaustive dive into how computers work (and I regained much of my awe at these machines we take so for granted nowadays).
