We are surrounded by inanimate objects and then there are these computers that feel magical. How can a computer compute? This book starts at the level of transistors and from there it builds gates, and from gates, it builds an ALU, part of a processor and from there a processor. Every step was understandable by teenage-me and although I know it’s a simplification of what’s going on in a real processor, it removed the mystique around computers and empowered me with a lot of understanding.
