This is not the first Biography I’ve read that was written by Walter Isaacson. He is a phenomenal writer. The Innovators, I have to admit, didn’t impress me as much. The book consists of micro biographies of dozens of personages involved in the advancement of technology since Ada Lovelace. It is an interesting read, but as a Computer Scientist I was already familiar with all of those personages to the level they were depicted (for the most part), which made the read mildly boring. I certainly learned new facts from most of these personages, but not as much as I anticipated. It might be an excellent read for those not familiar with these innovators, in which case I’d certainly recommend this book.
