What They Really Can't Do

David Harel

Popular Science

In Computers LTD., David Harel, best selling author of Algorithmics, explains and illustrates one of the most fundamental, yet under-exposed facets of computers-their inherent limitations. Looking at the bad news that is proven, lasting and robust, discussing limitation that no amounts of hardware, software, talents or resources can overcome, the book presents a disturbing and provocative view of computing at the start of the 21st Century.
