Description

Before slim laptops that fit into briefcases, computers looked like strange, alien vending machines. But in "the most staggering burst of technical invention by a single person in high-tech history" (?BusinessWeek?) Steve Wozniak invented the first true personal computer. Wozniak teamed up with Steve Jobs, and Apple Computer was born, igniting the computer revolution and transforming the world. Here, thirty years later, the mischievous genius with the low profile treats readers to a rollicking, no-holds-barred account of his life-for once, in the voice of the wizard himself.

Review quote

"This memoir truly reflects its author, both in its subject matter and its happy-go-lucky tone... A welcome, fresh perspective for an industry that seems so far removed from its original ideas." -- Peter Burrows - BusinessWeek "The mastermind behind Apple tells his story for the first time, from the invention of the first personal computer to the rise of Apple as an industry giant." -- Book Passage "At last, Mr. Wozniak gets the stage all to himself [in a] chatty memoir full of surprises... He reveals a technology pioneer more charming-and whose life is more poignant-than we expected." -- George Anders - Wall Street Journal
