Anyone pre-order the book? I am excited to read the book after the headlines from details of the book. After reviewing that he delayed cancer surgery to try alternative therapy in fear of being cut open. His wife spoke of begging him to get the surgery.

Steve also vowed to destroy the Droid saying he believe it was technology stolen from Apple.

He speaks of warning President Obama that he will be a one term president.

I can't wait to read this book!

Not sure what to think about the delaying surgery thing. Regular medicine has a dismal to no cure rate for pancreatic so I can see just saying what the hell, maybe I 'll give something else a try, won't hurt. He last longer than most. Hard to say.
Sounds like could be a real good read.

I didn't bother to pre-order it. It's unlikely that Amazon, iTunes, and other ebook vendors will run out of copies.

It's a good read. I didn't realize how involved Steve Wozniak had so much to do with the Apple technology in the early days.

I'm a bit disappointed.

It reads like an overly long magazine article and is more about the products than the man.

The author was obviously in awe of and intimidated by Jobs. Here's hoping a subsequent biographer will be a little more thorough.
