Publisher's Summary

Twenty-five years later, revisiting the first authorized biography of Apple and its co-founder and celebrity CEO, Steve Jobs. In 1984, The Little Kingdom: The Private Story of Apple Computer told the story of Apples first decade alongside the histories of Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. Now, completely revised and expanded, Return to the Little Kingdom is the definitive biography of Apple and its founders from the very beginning. Moritz brings readers inside the childhood homes of Jobs and Wozniak and records how they dropped out of college and founded Apple in 1976. He follows the fortunes of the company through the mid-1980s, and in new material, tracks the development of Apple to the present and offers an insider's profile of Jobs, whose genius made Apple the powerhouse it is today. Required reading for everyone who's ever listened to music on an iPod, Return to the Little Kingdom is timely and thorough, and the only book that explains how Steve Jobs founded the company that changed our world.

Hard work

I don't normally write reviews but hopefully I can help my fellow man and help someone to avoid this book. I thought there would be more books about Steve Jobs and the Apple phenomenon but the choice, unfortunately, is limited. This book is long, tedious and full of meaningless detail. Avoid it, unless you like that kind of thing.

Meticulous anticlimax

Contains impressively thorough minutiae which make up a fascinating picture of Steve Jobs and, more accurately, the tale of Apple Computers, Inc. Right up until 1984.
Exactly.
A clumsily tacked on final chapter addressing the minor details of Woz' & Jobs' departure, the return of the latter and the salvation of Apple with iMac, not to mention the company's second global revolution, this time in the field of mobile devices, is nothing short of an embarrassment. And a massive anticlimax.
Which is the unfortunate reason that an audiobook which often had me glued to the Apple device of my choice only gets 2 stars (unlike the latter which, inevitably, gets 5.)
