I recommend this book. The cover does it no justice.

I especially enjoyed the first half of the book because it talks about people I was unaware of and of the very beginnings of some now established companies.

The book starts way back. And it is really interesting. People thought of computers and doing things with them even before they remotely had the ability to produce them. On the other hand, some innovators become locked into their technology and were subsequently left behind.
