'I, Woz is essential reading, not just because of the great prose or because it makes revelations...it's real value lies in the reflections of the man who sparked the computer revolution...I, Woz offers lessons for the next generation: believe in yourself, make do, be honest and work alone. He might have added: "be generous" - it's the way he's led his life' (Sydney Morning Herald)

I imagine the aim was for him to appear as just 'a regular guy' but he came across as a bit of a prat. I found the style irritating and frustrating. The content I found difficult as well. Just too much of 'the great I am.' He shows himself to be a rather unpleasant person with his 'pranks' which seemed to be there to show what a clever person he is but just shows him as unkind and thoughtless.
I did my best with this book but in the end I thought 'I've got better things to do.'
He should have employed a good editor.
Steve Jobs gets most of the attention but me being a programmer, I was always more interested in Woz's story.
Very interesting book.
It's artlessly written but that adds to its charm. Wozniak comes across as a rather guileless individual, contrasting with his description of Steve Jobs who fleeced Wozniak of money and attempted to disrupt his post-Apple remote control business.
