Recounts some of the technological developments that ultimately led to the personal computer, and the role J.C.R. Licklider (1915-1990) played, particularly as an advocate for the interactive computer. In 1962, the former MIT psychologist organized a program of computer research for ARPA, the defense department's civilian research arm. The tone of the book is more nostalgic than technical.
