From the reviews:
"Giants of Computing is most useful as a reference work, but it could also serve as a supplemental course resource or possibly a core text in a class on the history of computing. ... the author provides selected examples of pivotal contributions, such as mathematical formula or code samples. Summing Up: Recommended. All levels/libraries." (S. A. Patton, Choice, Vol. 51 (7), March, 2014)
"The author has given us a mini-biography of 59 `giants' of computing, with a brief account of their major achievements. ... the book is absolutely delightful and will provide the reader with many interesting and enjoyable evenings. There are even two quizzes for readers who wish to test their knowledge of people and events in computing." (James Van Speybroeck, Computing Reviews, October, 2013)
