A New York Times Bestseller: "iWoz traces the life and times of a brilliant, gifted...individual whose contributions to the scientific, business and cultural realms are extensive." —Bookpage
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. In iWoz 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.
This book is great and it comes from the other co founder of Apple so you get a different point of view of how the company started. I can tell from reading this that you can understand some parts better if you have some computer background but this is only when Woz goes into detail about some of his creations but most of the book is entertaining and makes you want to keep reading.
I loved reading this book from start to finish. It's such a great story from Steve's point of view. I would definitely suggest this book, especially to other computer science majors.
I was one of the 10 year olds who got stared programming on a friend's Apple ][ right around 79-80. I remember reading everything I could until I finally got my own Atari computer in 81. Very nice to hear the full story from someone with the personality of Woz. A great human being.
