I spotted this when glancing through a book catalogue; well, with a title 
like that how could I miss it?

Subtitled "How 26 Lines of Code Changed the World", edited by Torie Bosch 
and illustrated by Kelly Chudler (can't say that I've heard of them).


``Programming is behind so much of life today, and this book draws together
  a group of distinguished thinkers and technologists to reveal the
  stories and people behind the computer coding that shapes our
  world.  From how university's [sic] databases were set up to
  recognise only two genders to the first computer worm and the
  first pop-up ad, the diverse topics reveal the consequences of
  historical decisions and their long-lasting, profound implications.
  Pb $34.99''

Lines of code, eh? :-)

Disclaimer: I have no connection with them, but I'll likely buy it.
