iWOZ: Computer Geek to Cult Icon: How I invented the personal computer, co-founded Apple, and had fun doing It : How I Invented the Personal Computer, Co-Founded Apple, and Had Fun Doing It
"iWoz? traces the life and times of a brilliant, gifted... individual whose contributions to the scientific, business and cultural realms are extensive."—?BookpageBefore 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.
" Sincerity and enthusiasm are the hallmarks of this irrepressible memoir; and Wozniak's optimism offers an example to us all. " - Christian Science Monitor
" 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. " - BusinessWeek
" A sincere book.... The sweet, loving, almost innocent quality of this memoir sets it apart from most business people's bios, yet it still tells a fascinating story of this inventor/artist. " - Enterprise
" One can't help getting caught up in [Wozniak's] excitement.... Wozniak learned to 'think differently' long before the company he helped found ever started using that phrase in a marketing campaign. " - New York Times Book Review
" iWoz is the story about a man filled with curiosity and drive.... And it's about never forgetting what makes a person happy in life and never forgetting one's dreams. " - USA Today
" Steve Wozniak tells his version of the company's genesis in an endearingly gee-whiz conversational style. " - Boston Sunday Globe
" 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. " - Wall Street Journal
" 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
