The Evolution of Technology
Having sold more than 2 million copies over its lifetime, How Computers Work is the definitive illustrated guide to the world of PCs and technology. In this new edition, you’ll find detailed information not just about PCs, but about how changes in technology have evolved the giant, expensive computer dinosaurs of last century into the smaller but more powerful smartphones, tablets, and wearable computing of today. Whether your interest is in business, gaming, digital photography, entertainment, communications, or security, you’ll learn how computing is evolving the way you live.
A full-color, illustrated adventure into the wonders of TECHNOLOOGY
This full-color, fully illustrated guide to the world of technology assumes nothing and explains everything. Only the accomplished and award-winning team of writer Ron White and artist Tim Downs has the unique ability to meld descriptive text with one-of-a-kind visuals to fully explain how the electronic gear we depend on every day is made possible. In addition to all the content you’ve come to expect from prior editions, this newly revised edition includes all-new coverage of topics such as:
• How smartphones and tablet PCs put the power of a desktop computer in your hands–literally
• How computing technology is linking our homes, work place, entertainment, and daily communications
• How advances such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, eBay, and smartphones are expanding our universe of friends, knowledge, and opportunity
• How increased miniaturization leads to new products, such as smartphone, smartwatches, and Google Glass
• How computing technology takes advantages of quantum physics and innovations no one even imagined a few years ago
For two decades, How Computers Work has helped newbies understand new technology, while hackers and IT pros have treasured it for the depth of knowledge it contains. This is the perfect book about computing to capture your imagination, delight your eyes, and expand your mind, no matter what your technical level!
Beautifully detailed illustrations and jargon-free explanations walk you through the technology that is shaping our lives. See the hidden workings inside computers, smartphones, tablets, Google Glass, and the latest tech inventions.
Ron White has been writing How Computers Work for 20 years, during which time he’s also been executive editor at PC Computing magazine, BYTE.com, and groovyPost.com.

Kennedy Journalism Awards, and The National Endowment for the Humanities. He and his wife, Sue, have bounced back and forth between Boston and San Francisco before finally ending up in San Antonio.
If this had been a car instead of saying one petal makes it go and one petal makes it stop we would see all the different systems that make the whole. Throw in the assembly line and radar.
If this had been a person we would get circulatory system, nerves system, and all the systems. Throw in where people come from and how speech works.
This book is not just how to press a button but why you want to press the button. We also learn about the world the computer lives in and how it communicates with that world.
After reading the book you will have a knowledgeable background. I have to snicker now and then as it describes obsolete equipment. Sometimes this is needed for a better background. However the theories are still sound.
I even learned something on Quantum Dots.
Bought a prior release back in the 90's when I first got into computers.
It was SOOOO helpful and written so well. The graphics are perfect.
I bought this version for my son. He kept professing how he knew all about computers, when actually, he is just an advanced user. I told him it was like being a racecar driver but not knowing how the car is put together. I am having him read this book over the summer and he is devouring it and having intelligent computer discussions with me. So happy for this book.
