E. George Walters III - Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Penn State Erie, The Behrend College

Book Title: Computer Organization and Design: The Hardware/Software Interface, Second Edition

Author: David A. Patterson and John L. Hennessy

Book Description:

I would not have made it to this point in my academic career, or even had an academic career in the first place, if not for my graduate advisor Mike Schulte. It all began when Mike loaned this book to me a year before I even started graduate school. It was the first textbook I ever read cover to cover, and I learned more from it than any other textbook. Several editions later, this edition is long out of date and may never be taken off the shelf of the library. However, I will smile when I think of it sitting there as a snapshot of the time and a reminder of a simple act that changed my life. Thank you, Mike for everything; you have made more of a difference than you know.
