The Second Coming of Steve Jobs

by Alan Deutschman

You may love or hate the man, but his influence in the industry can’t be argued.

From the acclaimed Vanity Fair and GQ journalist–an unprecedented, in-depth portrait of the man whose return to Apple precipitated one of the biggest turnarounds in business history. With a new epilogue on Apple’s future survival in today’s roller-coaster economy, here is the revealing biography that blew away the critics and stirred controversy within industry and media circles around the country.

Before slim laptops that fit into briefcases, computers looked like strange, alien vending machines. But in the most staggering burst of technical invention by a single person in high-tech history, Steve Wozniak invented the first true personal computer. Wozniak teamed up with Steve Jobs, and Apple Computer was born, igniting the computer revolution and transforming the world. Here, thirty years later, the mischievous genius with the low profile treats readers to a rollicking, no-holds-barred account of his life—for once, in the voice of the wizard himself.

Let’s face it: iPhones are cool. They are 90% of what I’m looking for in a phone. But I won’t buy one - yet. And that’s saying a lot from a guy like me, who is a huge Apple fan.

UPDATE 10/31/2007 I bought one.
