Thanks for the recommendation! I bought and finished the ebook. I didn't know Bob Noyce of Intel, together with Jack Kilby, was the integrated circuit inventor.

I was also from electronics school. All my classmates were reluctant in it because their grades did not meet the cutoff points of their choice course. I enrolled in electronics because I wanted to be an inventor like Thomas Edison. That was before I knew of his bad reputation. I was not good on hands-on activities like soldering and wiring, so I transitioned to a software development job in the end.

Good that George Boole and Claude Shannon are mentioned. It makes me want to learn boolean algebra and information theory.

I was the one who gave you a 5 for this recommendation.
