Compiled from the Circuits section of the New York Times , a guide to the inner workings of computers, the Internet, and many modern electronic devices found in homes, businesses, transportation systems, and medicine. Clear, concise essays and well over one hundred full-color illustrations explain the mysteries of eighty devices that have shaped our lives.
