The Mighty Micro (1st Edition)

The Mighty Micro - The impact of the computer Revolution by Christopher Evans
Hardback published in 1979 by Gollanz
254 Pages
Written when the first personal computers were just being designed, this book is an excited look into the future. Dr Chris Evans, a psychologist and computer scientist, predicts that by 2001 it will be possible to store an entire library in the space occupied by just one of today's books; computer technology will shake political systems to their foundations; and that we will all have a 20-hour working week and retire at fifty.
