Since 1972, when he was eleven, Dylan Jones has been regularly buying records in a 30-year binge of glam rock, punk, disco and rap. His life is full of disparate pop stars and their disparate records. But now, the iPod has changed everything, because Apple CEO Steve Jobs and his chief designed Jonathan Ive's invention has enabled listeners to put all their music in one place. Dylan Jones' book is about the iPod, its astonishing effect on the music industry, its invention and marketing. It's also about how a little plastic and chrome digital music player no bigger than a mobile phone has irrevocably altered our relationship with music. This book features the design and creation of the iPod and the rejuvenation of Apple. It is also a history of Dylan Jones' personal journey through music, and his own obsessions with the Beatles, Bruce Springsteen, Burt Bacharach, punk, hip-hop, Van Morrison and U2. He selects the best 100 jazz records ever made and shows how to make your own definitive 175-song Beatles album. There are comprehensive lists and essays about what you could put on your own iPod. No longer will you have to bend to the whims of a record company's unalterable choices. With iPod, it's a scroll in the park, creating and collecting infinite playlists of your own with this wonderful memory box. Part personal memoir, part product history, part marketing manual, iPod, Therefore I Am is the literary love-child of Nick (High Fidelity) Hornby and Michael (Liar's Poker) Lewis.

Review:
'Wise, witty and fabulously entertaining, Dylan Jones has written a must-read book about Steve Jobs' 21st Century jukebox - and why we fell in love with music all over again.' -- Tony Parsons 'Not only is this Jones's account of his 'journey through music' and a celebration of the infinite playlist, it's also packed with helpful hints on getting the most out of your own ipod.' GLAMOUR (August 2005) 'it's Jones's skill at weaving poignant memories with the songs he listened to that makes this compelling.' EASY LIVING (August 2005) 'an engaging, witty personal journey...Jones is a sharp observer of the social scene and an original music critic.' -- Ed Smith TIMES (9.7.05) 'Jones takes us on a journey from a misspent youth...throught Bowie to punk and discoe and all points beyond. He writes entertainingly about the kaleidoscope of musical trends over the past thirst years, and the fashioon crimes they have engendered...' -- Mick Brown DAILY TELEGRAPH (23.7.05) 'Witty and entertaining.' AXM Magazine 'A true music geek, his love of the little white box is matched only by his love of music and, through a highly personal journey, his years in the business mean his tales of derring-do have the weight to make for hugely entertaining reading. Lucky bastard.' CITY LIFE 'His observations on the cults of youth are also sharply executed, with am effortless, conversational tone. He writes with disarming wit about his passion for Roxy Music, which peaks when Bryan Ferry compliments him on wearing 'the most amazing trousers I've ever seen." -- Sarah Boden OBSERVER (17.7.05) 'As ipods are more addictive than crack, you'll find Dylan Jones's homage to the music world's pocket rocket utterly moreish.' TATLER (September isse) 'Jones writes with fervour abou the pop music from the seventies...Littered with anecdotes from fashionable London life, the book manages to leap fairly comfortably back and fourth through three topics: music, the creation of the iPod and Jones's own life story.' -- Conor Sweeney IRISH INDEPENDENT (30.7.05)
