This book explains the life of the man who made the Allied victory over Germany in World War II possible wonderfully well! It also exposes the horrors of "gay conversion therapy", and makes it quite clear that even being a national hero won't spare you if you're not of the "right" sexual orientation!

This is an illustrated biography covering the famous British mathematician Alan Turing's entire life. In my University years, I studied much of Turing's work so I was greatly interested to learn more about his tragic life. There is a fair bit of math in the book, but I would have liked a bit more because most of his important theorems can be expressed so elegantly.
