Professor Matwyshyn is a fan of Professor/Rear Admiral Grace Hopper,
the mother of software engineering (and hacking).  
Hopper wrote a book called Understanding Computers (1984).
Below is a bibliography of books about Hopper.  There aren't many, and
many of the ones that exist are for children. (Hopper probably would
have approved of this, but computer historians and Hopper fans do not.)
