The Art of Doing Science and Engineering: Learning to Learn

Richard Hamming

COMPUTING PIONEER: Richard Hamming was one of the most celebrated mathematicians of the 20th century. He worked on the Manhattan Project and at Bell Laboratories and received the Turing Award, the highest honor in computer science.

CELEBRATED REISSUE: The New Yorker named the Stripe Press edition of The Art of Doing Science and Engineering one of the best books we read in 2020. The new edition includes a foreword by computer scientist and Dynamicland founder Bret Victor. NAME RECOGNITION: The Art of Doing Science and Engineering is studded with anecdotes that feature other computer science legends, including Claude Shannon, Vannevar Bush, and Grace Hopper. ENDURING APPEAL: The ideas Hamming puts forth are not only for mathematicians and computer scientists, nor have they lost their resonance as technology has evolved. What Hamming ultimately proposes is a style of thinking that can lead to great ideas-in any field. ENGAGED COMMUNITY: Stripe Press has a sizable community of avid fans-who run the gamut from startup founders to executives at some of the world’s largest companies-who eagerly await each new title. Many readers tweet about our books-the Stripe Press shelfie is a genre unto itself-as do the founders of Stripe and many Stripe employees.
