This is a guide through the Maze of Microcomputing. The first chapter defines sound reasons for buying a Micro - why we enter the maze in the first place - and provides a brief history of the development of computing. The author describes in simple terms how a Micro works, and takes you up to writing your own simple programs. He leads you through the bewildering choice of Micros by a comparison of the main features of all the popular machines on the market, to help you decide which machine best suits your needs. The strengths and weaknesses of the various programming languages are covered, as well as the peripherals on the market. This book draws together all the various pieces of the jigsaw - the Micro's components, the choice of popular machines, programming and programming languages - to draw you a map of the Micro Maze, so that you can get to the heart of this challenging new technology.
