With the subtitle "What You Need to Know About Computers, the Internet, Privacy, and Security", this book by  Brian W. Kernighan, co-author of the classic K&R book "The C Programming Language", covers how computers are built and how they compute; what programming is and why it is difficult; how the Internet and the web operate; and how all of these affect our security, privacy, property, and other important social, political, and economic issues.


The book also touches on fundamental ideas from computer science and some of the inherent limitations of computers. It covers not only how computers operate but also how they influence our daily lives.
