Review: Alan Turing: Unlocking the Enigma

Alan Turing: Unlocking the Enigma
Alan Turing: Unlocking the Enigma by David Boyle

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I alternated between the Kindle edition and the audiobook narration via Audible.

This is a good introduction to the short life of Alan Turing for someone who, like me, has a limited knowledge of his life and achievements. It’s a quick, interesting read and overviews his contributions to cracking the German codes during the Second World War. It discusses his sexuality and his eventual suicide in 1954.

Again, it is just an overview and may not be suitable for someone looking for a more comprehensive description of his life.
