iWoz: From Computer Geek to Cult Icon: How I Invented the Personal Computer, Co-Founded Apple, and Had Fun Doing It by Steve Wozniak
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I am not the biographical type. I’ve probably read maybe two in my life – this being one. With that said, this book is seriously awesome. Sure, it’s chock full of tech speak and over-the-top TMI, but in all that you get a glimpse of the real Woz. And he’s so totally cool. Like that favorite uncle you only get to see once a year at your family’s 4th of July reunion. He brings all the illegal fireworks. Yeah, that uncle.
Woz writes his story in a way that let’s the reader into his life without being too intrusive. So you don’t get that voyeuristic guilty sensation. He takes you on a journey of his own genius without being aware of it himself. His stories were often so clever or amusing I followed my husband around reading them again out loud.
So I totally recommend any fan of any genre to pick this one up.
