Here are just a handful of the great reviews ALAN TURING: THE ENIGMA has received…
‘This rather shadowy figure has now finally been lifted into the light of day… it has to be said that Andrew Hodges has put together an extraordinary story.’ — Sunday Telegraph
‘Hodges’s biography is sensitive, sympathetic and uncompromisingly intellectual. The maths is extremely hard work – but helps the lay reader to appreciate the scale of Turing’s achievements.’ — Independent on Sunday
‘Life and work are both made enthralling by Hodges, himself a scientist.’ — Sunday Times
‘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
‘This is not a book to be argued about. It is a book to be read.’ — New Scientist
‘One of the finest scientific biographies ever written.’ — New Yorker
