My disappointed is directed mostly toward the author for doing a poor job in developing anything of real substance from interviews with Wozniak.
It is almost as if she let Steve ramble on about anything that came to mind and then transcribed it , word for word, into a book.
Very little structure, very little probing into what must have been a very complex relationship with Steve Jobs.
In some places it felt as if she must be getting paid by the word. It was maddening to hear Steve recount something by repeating the same thought four or five times.
Based on what impression of "The Woz" comes through, that of an egocentric genius, with many childish qualities, I don't doubt for a minute that these ramblings came straight from his mouth.
However, I would have preferred that the author use some skill in editing, or simply recorded the discussion and published it in Q and A form.
This is the first negative review I have ever posted. I really wanted to like this book....just didn't happen.
