The relevance of the book the Secret language of science?

Everywhere suggest to read a book hidden language of computer science. Found it. 2001.
Judging by the book's title and contents obsolete there is nothing, all the same, as does the basic things are discussed. But still interested in this issue, maybe something is set up wrong and will not work as it is described, still the area is developing very fast... those Who have read this book, please tell me, is it desirable to read it in 2017?
And generally, I can tell you in two words what the book is about who exactly will be useful to read and at what stage of learning, what may the knowledge needed for successful reading this book and understanding it.

Actual, we can say it is a classic of computer literature.
For reading need the minimum of knowledge(to know what computer, mouse,keyboard), everything has been working not as it is described, but this book offers a beautiful Foundation to start with.

Are you talking about the Code, Petzold? It will cease to be relevant only when the computers disappear in the form in which they are now. And not the fact

Of course relevant. And read preferably anyone who can already write their own, albeit small, program.
I have experience of development. Now just began to take a course on computer architecture and remembered about this book, it sort of says a lot about how there are all level zero and one is calculated - Jace43 commented on June 14th 19 at 20:12
and they're talking about computer devices, ranging from logic elements and of the accumulator and ending with a simplified processor. - Zit commented on June 14th 19 at 20:15
