About the Book

This book is not what it seems. It appears to be about technology, but it is really about people. It looks like a history book, but it is really an adventure story. Even its title is an oxymoron. The Microprocessor: A Biography was not written for a select audience, but for every audience -- and especially for the general reader. The general reader, with little or no understanding of electronics and computers, will find a complete overview of the microprocessor written in a style that is intentionally non-technical and that takes great pains to explain complicated topics. He or she will also find, I hope, an entertaining story about human ambition, greed, teamwork, feuds, and glory. - Preface.
