    I think that book actually came out about 6 months ago. There was some internet media coverage back then on this. From what I read, it looked pretty interesting.

    I know there was a bit of a controversy as the two Steves don't see eye-to-eye nowadays and the book is supposedly reporting a play by play of what happened behind the scenes and it doesn't show His Jobs-ness in a flattering aspect.

    While I understand that Steve Jobs is a PITA to work for, I have an even lower opinion of Woz. I'd like to read the book at some point as it might improve my opinion.

    I'm in the middle of reading it now (only about 40 pages into it). It's laid out like a 3rd grade book (big letters, short paragraphs). The first part seems to be about him growing up and lays a basis for him designing the Apple. One of my co workers read it and he says its a good book. I'm guessing the good stuff is later on in the book.

    All of the history articles I have read about Apple's early days tend to suggest that his Job'ness was a somewhat ruthless guy at the time... doing things behind Woz's back without telling him... nonetheless, he was also the key "artistic" driving force, even then.

    So, it is exactly this lack of eye-to-eye that should make the book interesting! I am going to pick it up today; when I am done, I will post a review.
