On my travels a few months ago I picked up iWoz at the airport and have only now got around to finishing it. Its a great story told by Wozniak that sets straight some of the ill-reported news that has become history over the years.

From his days of minimising logic circuits when he was a kid, to building the Apple II and watching the company’s success sky-rocket – its worth a read if your interested in how Apple got started or what it takes to execute a wild idea. The book has also just launched its own website – which links right through to Steve’s Linked In profile – not a bad connection to have.

update – there is also this video interview with Guy Kawasaki interviewing Steve.

Im half way through Steven Levy’s Hackers, book (published in 1984) – A quote from Steve Wozniak caught my eye. In finally telling Jobs, he would quit his job at HP and work for Apple full-time;

But even as he agreed to quit HP and work with Jobs full-time, he told himself that what he was doing was no longer pure hacking. The truth was that starting a company had nothing to do with hacking or creative design. It was about making money. It was ‘Stepping over the boundary’ as Wozniak later put it.

Its a very enjoyable read if your interested in where things began. Im heading to Spain next week for a short break, and should get a run at finishing this book.
