Throughout the 1950s, engineers were stymied by the problem of how to connect the thousands of circuits that a sophisticated computer would require. The solution finally came from two ingenious young Americans, Jack Kilby and Robert Noyce. Independently, each had hit upon the stunning Monolithic Idea, which became the silicon microchip. The Chip tells the scientific and entrepreneurial adventure story of their discovery and of its growth into a global information industry that transformed -- and continues to transform -- our world.
