Read in November, 2008

Steve Wozniak is a fascinating personality and the father of the modern personal computer. His story deserves to be told in a manner befitting the impact he and his inventions have had on the world.

However, Woz, despite his genius with electronics, is not a writer. Nor, apparently, is his co-author. This book's writing is amateurish and unengaging. In the hands of a qualified biographer, this could have been one of the most arresting biographies of the last 30 years. Instead, it reads like a very long, very simple blog post.

Skip this book, and just read "Fire in the Valley" instead.

M I agree. I am currently reading this book and am sometimes shocked by some of the sentence structures and the abrupt ending of paragraphs.
