This book, and the narration, was REALLY well done. I had a hard time turning this thing off. I had been following Kevin since he first made the news about the whole Netcom incident as I was a member at that time. It was interesting hearing the differences reported from the main stream news as well as the online tech community and hearing so many discrepancies between the facts. Over the years we all found out how unfair they were towards Kevin in regards to the law. Of course he was no angel and he did deserve to pay for some things, which he admits to. But seeing how he did turn all of this into such a positive for himself was probably the best part of the story in my opinion. Of course it was extremely entertaining hearing some of these exploits and how he "maneuvered" the system.
I highly recommend this book!
There have been so many different versions of what really took place in the beginning of Apple. This story shows how Steve got started and became interested in electronics, engineering, phreaking...etc. One of my favorite parts of this was that he actually went into detail about several of his inventions and hacks. While some of it was a little distracting from being narrated and probably better if reading it was still extremely enjoyable.
Woz is, in my eye, one of the best innovators and engineers of our time. I mean he gave us the personal computer as we know it today.
The Woz is the king of digital engineering and of course the father of the personal PC. If you are interested in finding out the details of how this whole industry got it's start this is THE book to get....Honestly, THE book!!!
This is a great short story. I read this book several years ago and saw it on Audible so I had to grab it since I remembered I had liked it so much when I was younger. This is such a great story for younger people and kids as well since it teaches values and how to respect others along the way with finding your own path in life.
