Code: The Hidden Language of Computer Hardware and Software – Charles Petzold

The Information: A History, A Theory, A Flood – James Gleick

I picked up the book The Information: A History, A Theory, A Flood, by James Gleick, knowing nothing about Information Theory.  After reading this wonderful account on the history of the subject and its historical figures, I highly recommend this to anyone wishing to become acquainted with this field of thought.
