Flynn's attractive encyclopedia provides a fresh look at the rapidly evolving world of computers and computer science. It includes 286 signed entries written by more than 125 contributors. The four volumes are organized by topic: volume 1 focuses on the history of computing, important innovators, associations, and events; volume 2 discusses design, processes, inventions, and inventors; volume 3 features articles on how computer science has influenced our lives, from fashion design to music to astronomy; volume 4 explores the networked environment including Internet history and applications, electronic commerce, and digital libraries. Many articles are enhanced by sidebars, glossary definitions, black-and-white illustrations, cross-references, and bibliographic or Internet resources. Additional features include time lines, a glossary, and an index to the set. Intended for general readers and high school students, this encyclopedia will appeal to anyone curious about this complex field or its impact on today's world. S.
