THE IMITATION GAMES Opens in US Cinemas Today!


THE IMITATION GAME, the movie inspired by Andrew Hodges‘s critically-acclaimed ALAN TURING: THE ENIGMA – the definitive biography of the genius mathematician who helped crack the Enigma Code during the war – opens today in North American cinemas.

The book, released this week in tie-in editions, is published by Vintage Books in the UK and Princeton University Press in the US. Here’s just a small selection of praise that the book has enjoyed…

‘A first-rate presentation of the life of a first-rate scientific mind… it is hard to imagine a more thoughtful and warm biography than this one.’ — New York Times Book Review

‘Andrew Hodges, in this fine biography… brings Turing the thinker and Turing the man alive for the reader and thus allows us all to share in the privilege of knowing him.’ Financial Times

‘One of the finest scientific biographies ever written.’ — New Yorker

‘Andrew Hodge’s book is of exemplary scholarship and sympathy. Intimate, perceptive and insightful, it’s also the most readable biography I’ve picked up in some time.’ — Time Out

‘This book stands the test of time. It is a labour of love… compelling.’ — Energy and Technology

‘This is not a book to be argued about. It is a book to be read.’ New Scientist

‘One of the finest scientific biographies I’ve ever read: authoritative, superbly researched, deeply sympathetic and beautifully told.’ — Sylvia Nasar, author of A Beautiful Mind
