Book: PC Roadkill

PC Roadkill, by Hyman Michael, is done in the style of an early 1990s computer help book. It contains any amusing stories from that era of computing, primarily from the epicenter of innovation: Silicon Valley.

If you don’t recognize names like WordPerfect, Borland, OS/2, and Digital Research then many of the stories may not be of much interest. Though you’ll still get a kick out of the exotic ways how people decorated their cubicles — whether or not you were around during the time when tech workers lived in cubicles. In all, this is a light, quick, and amusing read.

My rating: 6/10
