    Disappointing - no real insight, just information you could find on Wikipedia (or better yet, John Siracusa's old Ars Technica reviews). Hackett devotes more time to discussing the processor and port changes than the human factor of the iMac. I would have loved to know more reactions from publications and people who were there at the time, rather than a link to a podcast with Jason Snell.

(A lot of the side points are hyperlinked, giving the book the feel of an extended blog rather than a standalone work, and it's not great for historical purposes either.) The iBooks formatting isn't very good: it forces you to read in tiny landscape text, with no option to resize except in 'scrolling mode', which then means you can't see any of the pictures.

    A superficial look at the early iMac series and the first few OSX releases. The information scarcely exceeds what you'd find in a Wikipedia article and seems mostly there to pad out a book of gorgeous product photography.

    A really nice book, it is very detailed and really does a good job explaining how Apple went downhill and then how Steve got them back on track. I highly recommend reading this book on iPad or Mac through iBooks.
