The Information: A History, a Theory, a Flood

The Information: A History, a Theory, a Flood - James Gleick "My first intro to Info Theory and not my last"

Gleick explains information theory from soups to nuts, from African drum talking through Shannon's information theory. His chapter on information entropy is the first time when I finally started understanding the second law of thermodynamics (since they relate so well).

Because of this book any books that have anything regarding information theory, I ended buying it and listening.
