Tracy Kidder brings us the inspiring life of an American original, the exciting story of Paul English, an inventive, kinetic, and generous man who had a mind for the age that was coming. Despite suffering from what would eventually be diagnosed as bipolar disorder, English belongs to what one of the world's greatest living scientists, Donald Knuth, has called the 2 percent: people with a special talent that lay dormant for millennia in a fraction of humanity, waiting for its very instrument - the computer - to be invented. With this unforgettable portrait, Kidder takes us inside the mind of a mesmerizing figure who is unique and yet a representative creature of our entrepreneurial age - bold, big-hearted, and as unpredictable as America itself.
