Abstract TODAY EVEN FIRST GRADERS KNOW THAT COMPUTER CAN DO FANTASTIC THINGS, THAT FOR CERTAIN PURPOSES AT LEAST COMPUTERS ARE TRULY SUPERHUMAN, ONE COMPUTER BEING MORE THAN A MATCH FOR A MILLION HUMAN RIVALS. THE FUNDAMENTAL QUESTION FACING ANY BEGGINER IN COMPUTER SCIENCE ASKS JUST HOW IT IS THAT ELECTRICITY CAN BE TRAINED TO SUCH A SPECTACULAR LEVEL OF PERFORMANCE. THE ANSWER CAN BE COMPRESSED INTO TWO WORDS, HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE. COMPUTER HARDWARE INVOLVES CIRCUITS, MEMORY UNITS, READING AND WRITING DEVICES. AN ELEMENTARY DESCRIPTION OF THESE THINGS, REQUIRING NO BACKGROUND IN ELECTRICITY OR ENGINEERING, IS PRESENTED IN CHAPTERS 1 TO 4. NO EFFORT IS MADE TO TELL THE WHOLE STORY, ONLY TO SUGGEST THE UNDERLYING IDEAS. COMPUTER SOFTWARE MEANS PROGRAMMING, AND THIS ASPECT OF THE SUBJECT IS TREATED IN CHAPTERS 5 TO 14. THE BOOK THUS DIVIDES INTO TWO PARTS WHICH ARE ALMOST ENTIRELY INDEPENDENT OF EACH OTHER. THIS MEANS THAT IT MAY BE USED IN SEVERAL DIFFERENT WAYS.
