This book represents an interesting attempt to take an overall view of a data system defined by the author as "the artifact that consists of a digital computer, a control program, and an accessible library of programs and data." His intended audience are professionals in the computer industry whose pursuit of specialized vocations leads them away from systematic consideration of the data system as a whole. His avowed aim is "crispness in style and frugality in detail." Consequently this book covers a good deal of ground?sometimes very briefly.
