    Anyone know any good books that talk about the history of Apple. Looking for something that's a good read that goes into some of the behind the scenes info.

    I know you were asking about books, but there's a more in depth documentary called "Welcome to Macintosh". It really covers the development of the original and some later history. They even go into how they came to use the Motorola 68000 and even the history of the startup sounds. Read the movie synopsis for more info. I'd recommend it to anyone with an interest in Apple history.

    It's available for rent at the iTunes store.
