New York, NY 1988 Hard Cover First Edition. First Thus New in Near Fine jacket First Edition, First Thus. 9 3/16" Tall. Stated First Edition. BRAND NEW & Collectible. Another ... good book about Jobs, Wozniak and Apple Computer's early years. This one carries the tale up to 1987: call it the last scene of Act I. Wozniak has drifted off again; Jobs is out, replaced as chairman by John Sculley; the MacIntosh division finally has a hit with the MacIntosh Plus, and of course before Jobs' magnificent second life at Apple. Although written without Job's participation-"Mr Jobs will decide if a book should be written. He will also decide when it should be written, what it will contain, and he will choose the author, " this author was told-there was plenty of information available about the company and the personalities, and Butcher has assembled it well. A fine complement to Moritz's "The Little Kingdom, " which had covered the years up to 1984. 18 chapters, 224 pages with Epilogue. Read more Show Less

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Through the story of Apple Computer in California's ``Silicon Valley,'' Butcher, sometime editor of regional business magazines, traces the evolution of electronic computation from room-size vaccuum-tube units to the pinhead-microchip integrated-calculator circuits that now govern industrial communication. Apple was a classic shoestring, garage-based partnership, comprising a quiet genius (Stephen Wozniak) and an offbeat go-getter (Steven Jobs), which within three years came to be worth over $1 billion. Venture capital, publicity and a well-timed stock issue brought millions to Apple's principals, but as Butcher tells it the enterprise was ill-prepared for success. Haphazard management, poor marketing judgment and Jobs's abrasive personality, the author holds, led to internal chaos and dissension, with reciprocal executive screaming, employees in tears and parking-lot fist fights. Eventually, investors forced the appointment of a traditional executive from Pepsico, John Sculley; Wozniak lost interest, and Jobs, aged 30, lost out. Photos. 20,000 ad/promo; first serial to California Business. (September)
Library Journal
A fascinating unauthorized biography of Apple co-founder Steven Jobs, this also provides a history of Apple Computer, Inc., and insights into the personal computer industry. At times, Butcher seems biased against Jobs and his product the Macintosh, but he does manage to enumerate Jobs's positive entrepreneurial qualities. The book is based on interviews with Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, early Apple employees, Jobs's teachers and friends from high school and college, and long-time players in the Silicon Valley high-tech industry. Jobs declined to be interviewed. This is a captivating, ``can't put down'' type of book, which will be in demand. Recommended for public, academic, and company libraries.
