    I found Leavitt s book on Alan Turing a huge disappointmant Page after page of complicated mathematical formulae, less about Turing s role in breaking the Enigma Code and just a page or two on his arrest, trial and subsequent suicide If you want to understand the man behind the mystery this is not the book for you

    A little too complicated on the math side I know Turing was a mathematician, and his contributions were certainly astounding, but I was expecting on Turing himself and the struggles he went through to be accepted, to overcome the prejudice against him and the penalties that were exacted against him due to his homosexuality, an

    The acceptance of the man Alan Turing , and fully acknowledging his contribution to the world is barely understood as the general knowledge of The value of what he had done is so difficult to grasp Considering the battles that had hinged upon the intelligence provided by Ultra, an analyst can reasonably conclude that this was the biggest

    The first part of the book is a real mathematic challenge But gives some insight as to the genius of the man His society was interested in protecting their own reputations rather than engaging his mind At least the Queen has expunged his record and Alan has recouped his historical right Seems to me that Britain doesn t encourage good minds.
