    So whats the deal with this book? I have read on several sites of the dramatic decision to pull the book off shelves. But no one is saying why? Of course this would mean they don't know, but any speculation from you guys? I know Steve has had some shaky biographical details in his past, but nothing as of late that I've heard.

    it had something to do with secrets of apple... basically stuff jobs doesnt want the general public to know about I guess.

    PS: is it still possible to buy the book? All this publicity has gotten me interested about this book, lol

    Actually, they didn't just pull that particular book from the stores, they pulled ALL books by that publisher from the stores.

    But not until May 27th....
    All this will do is generate general interest...I can't wait to get to work today and see if we have any on order yet...I am sure macheads in the metrowest boston area will have to go somewhere for the book now that the chestnut hill apple store won't have it ;)
