Ada Lovelace´s brilliant talent for mathematics and huge imagination helped to pave the way for the invention of the computer software that powers the world around us. Every time you play a computer game or talk with a friend on your smartphone, you can only do so because of the pioneering work by Ada Lovelace.

Her work was groundbreaking. Unlike her poet father Lord Byron, she was not a famous figure during her lifetime. However, she became known to those who knew her as the "enchantress of numbers." This book tells Ada’s story.
