    Amazon sent me an email about this book being published months ago and I ordered it. It was supposed to ship in September and I finally got it last week. Geesh, talk about a reality book.

    All I can say is run out and buy this book. Very nice hardcover with tons of pics and cool Apple stories. 250 pages of easy to read anecdotes, stories and Apple nuts. MacRumors even has a mention in the book. Coffee table quality book with a very cool cover illustration of the back of a guys head with the Apple logo shaved into his head.

    The book certainly has a very interesting book cover. It's nice to be recognized as the close knit group that we have become over our beloved Mac. Hopefully I will get a chance to see the book in person.

    Dude you do realize that being called a cult is NOT a compliment and generally isn't a good thing...right? :rolleyes:

    Sounds like someone needs another session in the Happy Room with Steve-O :rolleyes:

    If my wife doesn't get me this book for Christmas, I'm going to have to get it for myself. Would you like a flower, my friend?

    <Batman music> na na na na na na na na Leader!

    Sounds like somebody needs to be taken out to the country, fed some gruel taught to chant "Steve Jobs is our unquestioned leader", so he can feel better!

    The only problem with this book for people like us is that it probably won't have too much stuff in it that you haven't already read. I've been reading Leander's Cult of Mac blog for about a year now... I figure that's the same stuff that's in the book- yet if it's really interesting it usually ends up over here in this circle anyway.

    Not that this should stop you from getting it for historical value alone.
