Are You Interested in a Sequel to "Code"?

This news is via a post from Michael Neel:

Charles Petzold, author of Code: The Hidden Language of Computer Hardware and Software, has been working on a sequel to this book that explains Alan Turing’s work on computability. The problem? The new book has been turned down by his publisher, Microsoft Press.

If you enjoyed Code, or are interested in a well-written look at Alan Turing’s work on computability, please spread the word that Charles Petzold is looking for a publisher.

By the way, if you are a C or C++ developer migrating to .NET, Mr. Petzold also wrote a free eBook called What the C or C++ Programmer Needs to Know About C# and the .NET Framework.

I loved Code, and I’d love a sequel as well. What a drag that is.

I loved CODE and think it should be required reading for anyone who goes near a computer. Or at least anyone who claims to know anything about computers. Unfortunately, I don’t know any publishers.
