The Advent of the Algorithm: The Idea that Rules the World by David Berlinski

The algorithm is just code, but it makes things happen. Its the set of abstract, detailed instructions that makes computers run. Any programmer can invent a new algorithm-and many have become millionaires doing just that. Computers, the Internet, virtual reality-our world is being transformed before our eyes, all because some quirky logicians and mathematicians followed the dream of ultimate abstraction and invented the algorithm. Beginning with Leibniz and culminating in the middle of this century with the work of little-known geniuses and eccentrics like Gdel and Turing, David Berlinski tells this epic tale with clarity and imaginative brilliance. You dont have to be a programmer or a math buff to enjoy his book. All you have to do is be fascinated by the greatest innovation of the twentieth century.
