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.

Sure, he maybe juvenile, divorced & modestly rich compared to his computer peers ,but his decency & humanity remained intact.

while it was interesting to read how apple started, I found the writing style rather juvenile. it's almost as if the co-writer just transcribed the interviews she had with him, while leaving out her own questions.

Nice to read about first hand account of early days when Apple was started. Enjoyed learning about Steve Wozniak.
