Alan Turing

Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara


Alan Turing (1912-1954) was an English computer scientist and mathematician. As a child he was in foster care for much of his first 10 years.
Alan grew up in England, where his best friends were numbers and a little boy called Christopher. When his young friend died, Alan retreated to the world of numbers and codes, where he discovered how to crack the code of the Nazi Enigma machine. This moving book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the brilliant mathematician's life.
