9780393061437: iWoz: Computer Geek to Cult Icon: How I Invented the Personal Computer, Co-Founded Apple, and Had Fun Doing It

“‘The Woz’ built the first [personal computer]―by hand, by himself.”―USA Today

Before slim laptops that fit into briefcases, computers looked like strange vending machines, with cryptic switches and pages of encoded output. But in 1977 Steve Wozniak revolutionized the computer industry with his invention of the first personal computer. As the sole inventor of the Apple I and II computers, Wozniak has enjoyed wealth, fame, and the most coveted awards an engineer can receive, and he tells his story here for the first time.

About the Author:

Steve Wozniak has been inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame and has received numerous awards, including the National Medal of Technology and the Heinz Award. He lives in California.

From AudioFile:

"Woz," or Steve Wozniak, the eternally optimistic wizard who, along with Steve Jobs, gave birth to Apple Computer, shares his life story in a wide-eyed, positive tone. Patrick Lawlor brings the perfect level of "California nerd cool" to the proceedings, unabashedly funneling Woz's enthusiasm into the recording. One of technology's great wags-to-riches stories (the author is an inveterate practical joker), iWoz provides not only an entertaining, lively memoir but an insightful view of a modern inventor whose mind never stops working. Be prepared for some tech talk that may whiz over your head, but it's never long before the story picks up again. D.J.B. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
