I really enjoyed reading this book. At times the programming jargon went over my head, but the meaning was not lost. At the age when most people were still trying to figure out what a computer was, Shamus was writing code and creating programs. Everything he learned about computers he taught himself. It was funny to read about the dawning of the computer age through the eyes of an often awkward teen that was more advanced than his teachers.
Is it any wonder that Shamus and his wife Heather have chosen to unschool their children? The last chapter in the book is a must-read for anyone mildly interested in homeschooling, unschooling, or alternative forms of education.
