Explains the structure and functions of microchips, hard drives, CD-ROMs, magneto-optical drives, tape drives, keyboards, serial ports, mice, modems, scanners, LANs, and printers
A suprisingly lucid volume of text-supported illustrations describing how computer devices do what they do. From mouse to CD-ROM, the treatment manages to convey "how it works" without being simplistic or overly complex. A very good overview for those curious about how computers make their magic.
