'not only informative for the initiated but also provides an excellent platform on which to build for the uninitiated ... the reader instinctively feels that they are in the hands of an expert totally on top of the subject matter, which of course is exactly the case' Dr Kevin Schuurer, ESRC Data Archive Bulletin, January 1995
'This comprehensive guide has been written for historians and all academics with no prior expertise in the use of computers. It provides guidance on how to get the most out of computers and how to avoid potential pitfalls.' GEOCAL, December 1994
`There is extensive discussion of databases and DBMS, but there is also a very good treatment of textual analysis and a final chapter on `putting it all togethr' which will be of interest to those contemplating use of IT in their research as well as their teaching. Finally, there is an extended bibliography and resource guide, including Internet addresses, although this information soon dates. This text is very welcome and sets a high standard.' The Economic History Review Vol XLVIII no 2
`It provides a broad overview of the history of computing in the historical profession...the book is well organized, understandable, and meets its goal of providing a good overview of the uses and issues for historians who want to utilize computers in their work...Professor Greenstein's book is a practical guide for the historian on how to use this tool to its best advantage.' Register of the Kentucky Historical Society
