About this item
Alan Turing was an extraordinary man who crammed into a life of only 42 years the careers of mathematician, codebreaker, computer scientist, and biologist. He is widely regarded as a war hero grossly mistreated by hiscountry, and it has become hard to disentangle the real man from the story. It is easy to cast him as a misfit, the stereotypical professor. But Turing was never a professor, his nickname "Prof" was given by his friends at Bletchley Park. Alan Turing’s nephew has taken a fresh look at the influences on Alan Turing’s life and creativity, offering a vibrant and entertaining approach to the life and work of a true genius.
