How Computers Work - A Simple Explanation (Ernie Dainow)

Without having to master a lot of technical jargon, this book is for those who wish to understand how computers operate.

Being succinct and easy to read was the most crucial writing rule. Four chapters in the book offer concise explanations of hardware, software, the Internet, and smartphones using simple examples and pictures.

The majority of introductory books on computers are either lengthy, in-depth technical works like those used in computer science courses or tutorials that give instructions on how to use a computer but give no information on how the device works within.

The vast space between these two extremes is where this book falls. To do this, only the most crucial aspects of computers are discussed. Other than some basic arithmetic, there is no math. The only requirement is being able to navigate a web browser.
