Revolution in The Valley


How was the Macintosh made? How did it evolve? What are the stories of the people who created it? Revolution in the Valley is a series of anecdotes compiled by Software Wizard Andy Hertzfeld about the early days of the Macintosh.

Apple Confidential 2.0

The subtitle of Apple Confidential 2.0 does a really nice job of saying what the whole book is about. "The Definitive History of the World's Most Colorful Company". I would agree that this is an up to date and thorough history of Apple Computers. This contains chapters on subjects as diverse as "Why 1985 wasn't like 1984" to "Woz's Wanderings". Since it would be almost impossible to summarize what's contained in this book, I've concentrated more on readability in this review.
