- Oct 1, 2006Just finished reading Woz's new autobiography. It's very, very, very
good. It might not have all the technical detail you could want, but
mostly he explains the why and how of all his major accomplishments
and influential experiences. The book probably could have been 500
pages and I did get the impression that some things were glossed over,
but it's not like the book is fluffy, in fact Woz admits plenty of
mistakes too (not just bragging about his successes.) Even at 300
page, the book is VERY readable because he writes just like he talks
-- very naturally and engaging. (Contrast that against Brian
Bagnall's Commodore book a year or two ago, which is full of technical
detail, but I was a serious chore to read because it was so poorly
So anyway, go buy and read this book. I read the whole thing in two
sittings, couldn't put it down.
A tiny spoiler: Woz says his favorite project was ... the Apple //c.
I wasn't expecting that!
