Issue No. 10 - October (1978 vol. 11)
Computers in the Navy is a collection of 15 diverse articles by various authors who unfortunately failed to agree on their target audience. The book attempts to cover the entire spectrum of computer usage from procurement, evaluation, and management ent of both hardware and software to the specifics of various applications. Consequently, it is difficult to imagine any one person being interested the entire book or even a large portion of it. This is especially true in light of the superficial, exclusively non-technical coverage given each of the topics. It should also be mentioned that, expecting three articles specifically discussing Navy procedures for procurement and data processing management, the topics are not unique to the Navy. All have counterparts in the other military services and, generally, in many civilian areas.
