I
was drawn to this book by its title & cover design. "Turing" in the
title plus the punched cover directly meant (at least in my own mind)
that it was about Alan Turing and the Universal machine.

Before this book I knew little about Turing's universal machine and the origins of the computer. I knew about Von Neumann only by the name.
