About the Author
Andrew Hodges is Tutor in Mathematics at Wadham College, Oxford University. His classic text of 1983, since translated into several languages, created a new kind of biography, with mathematics, science, computing, war history, philosophy and gay liberation woven into a single personal narrative. He is an active contributor to the mathematics of fundamental physics, as a follower of Roger Penrose. See www.turing.org.uk for further material.

Very nice book. Perfectly covered the genius of the great man. One needs to have basic knowledge of mathematics. The book could be simpler and could meet the need of a great biography. If one has seen the movie and liked it, one is going to love this too.
The paperback edition is somehow physically feeble and not totally safe to carry in a luggage.
