The mastermind behind Apple sheds his low profile and steps forward to tell his story for the first time. Before cell phones that fit in the palm of your hand and slim laptops that fit snugly into briefcases, computers were like strange, alien vending machines. They had cryptic switches, punch cards and pages of encoded output. But in 1975, a young engineering wizard named Steve Wozniak had an idea: What if you combined computer circuitry with a regular typewriter keyboard and a video screen? The result was the first true personal computer, the Apple I, a widely affordable machine that anyone could understand and figure out how to use. Wozniak's life--before and after Apple--is a "home-brew" mix of brilliant discovery and adventure, as an engineer, a concert promoter, a fifth-grade teacher, a philanthropist, and an irrepressible prankster. From the invention of the first personal computer to the rise of Apple as an industry giant, "iWoz" presents a no-holds-barred, rollicking, firsthand account of the humanist inventor who ignited the computer revolution. 16 pages of illustrations.

Reviews

"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
