4.0 out of 5 stars Not just for Apple fans, 27 Sep 2013
This review is from: The Apple Revolution: Steve Jobs, the counterculture and how the crazy ones took over the world (Paperback)
As with all books about Apple, the focus can tend to be on Steve Jobs, CEO and founder of the company, and this book has lots about Jobs. But Dormehl has managed to also take in details about Apple computers, Microsoft, Xerox and the wider social and technological changes that took place in the late sixties and early seventies that gave us the products that enable me to write this and for you to read it.

There is a lot of detail in the book and it is written in an engaging and interesting way; but there is not so much detail that it is unwieldy. It does not criticise Jobs for some of the decisions that he made, nor does it look at him with rose tinted spectacles. There is a little on Pixar, and a chapter on NeXT, but the primary focus remain on Apple.

I thought that it was a good read overall, and perhaps should be read alongside with Walter Issacson's book on Steve Jobs.
