Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  TKono
"Digital Revolutionaries: The Men and Women who Brought Computing To Life" by Steve Lohr is an informative book about computers for children. It chronicles the history of computers, from the very large to the very small. Many facts are given; timelines and newspaper articles are pasted into the book, too. Biographies of the so-called revolutionaries are given briefly. Most of the information is on well-known computer companies and devices that readers should be somewhat familiar with.

This book reads like a documentary narration, and it is very simple. Young readers may get excited by it, but older readers will feel the book is a bit too slow-paced. Some science behind computers is given, but it is watered- down to some degree. Overall, this New York Times book does its job of giving an introduction to the faces behind the computer revolution. This book would be best suited for youngsters with no knowledge of computers whatsoever.
