How one computer salesman contributed to the digital revolution

Last night I sat down next to someone who looked familiar at a university talk. This being a university, they turned out to have a PhD, be an author of a book and pioneer in the computer industry. Dr Christopher B. Yardley, is author of "ALSO INNOVATORS: How one computer salesman contributed to the digital revolution" (2016). The full text is available free online from ANU Press. The technology mentioned will sound like ancient history to computer professionals today. But the problems of introducing new technology are still current.
