The Soul of A New Machine (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.1139

In a turf war between two computer design companies, the designers are motivated to work only for the ultimate prize, the satisfaction of building the next generation machine. The Soul of a New Machine is a Pultizer Prize-winning work of nonfiction by Tracy Kidder.

Summary of the Book

They don’t do it for the money. They do it for the glory. In the 1970s, two companies go head to head to win the coveted fame for designing the next generation computer. In Data General Corporation, the workers will do anything to get project Fountainhead on its toes. They do it so that their competitors at the Digital Equipment Corporation are given a run for their money. After all, DEC’s VAX computer can’t be the only head honcho around. Data General’s headquarters at Westborough, Massachusetts, get the humble job of improving the existing products. However, even this team seeks to find some hope of glory, spearheading a secret project called Eagle for backup. Displaying the effects of the Mushroom Theory of Management, where employees kept in the dark and fed nothing at all to watch them grow, Tracy Kidder blends fiction and nonfiction to show how the Machine grows.
