    iWoz book today. I'm an engineering student and somebody recommended the book to me so I purchased it.

    That's it. Have you read it? What do you think?

    <---- Facebook is that way.

    And now you've editted your thread so it's actually asking for opinion, instead of just your status update. That's better.

    And Google + is this way -------- >

    Though, if he shortens it up a bit - it would work best as a Tweet. :D

    I laughed, I cried, I...

    You want a review AFTER you bought it and BEFORE you've read it. Read it. Come back, and we can compare notes.

    No no, I was just wanting to get some input form people who have read it, while I read it. I'll have the book finished in a day or two, which is well within the lifespan of a thread.

    Every single page --no joke-- he reminds us that he was better than other kids and that possibly even now people won't understand him.

    He repeats himself when he is talking about the tic-tac-toe project in the same page, with the same grammar sentence but in different paragraph. Seriously, he didn't hired an editor and the ghostwriter didn't see that one.

    Oh, and in every chapter he brags about some science fair achievement -- half the book is about that -- tells you "...and that's probably why I got interested in inventing the personal computer." Endless mentions to his dad and why he decided to become an engineer. It's actually funny to read the book because of the constant repetition and poor edition.

    I borrowed the book from the public library because I was interested in reading it. After I read it I was glad that I had just borrowed it rather than purchased it.....
