by Steve Wozniak


Steve Wozniak, also known as Woz, is the world's number one icon of engineering and leading figure of the computer age. Whatever device you're reading these words on, Woz's work and inventions somehow contributed to it.

Woz is known for being the good soul at Apple and looking for enjoyment and fun above all else. Some might think this would put him at a disadvantage in business.

But the truth is, Woz was never that interested in finances in the first place. In this autobiography, the tech titan explains how he has worked towards happiness and personal fulfilment – a philosophy of life that most of us would do well to embrace.
