The SciFri Book Club Reads ‘The Soul of a New Machine’
This week, the Science Friday Book Club reboots with a book that’s a love letter to computer engineers: Tracy Kidder’s 1981 geek epic, The Soul of a New Machine. For Book Club newbies, the concept is simple: Read the book, then call in to discuss it during our wrap-up broadcast on Friday, August 28th. In the mean time, share your thoughts with fellow Book Club members as you read, by using the hashtag #SciFriBookClub or posting in the comments below. Read an excerpt here.
