All Hail to Ve Ri TyStob!

Who else would give you an insight to Mrs Gates and her plights at the Gates Mansion? And introduce the most revolutionary computer game to ever be conceived.

Who is Verity Stob? Good question, I have never heard of her before. But, I think that is because I live in the US. And I really don't/didn't read EXE, Dr Dobbs, or The Register. But those are the exact publications Verity has written these columns for.

This book is a collection of Verity's best works, some more hilarious than the others. It really shows us a history of the computer world through a funny satirical eyes of Verity. Some of the stuff goes back to a time where the world invented the wheel, and not living back then, their humor gets lost on me, but some of it still hits the funny bone, even today. The Borland stuff itself is worth getting this book.

I really enjoyed reading this book, it is great to read a computer book that didn't bore you with all that technical stuff.
