Show synopsis After 25 years of avoiding the public eye, Steve Wozniak breaks his silence and tells the full story of the Apple computer, from its conception to his views on the iconic cult status it enjoys today. But for Steve's dream to build himself a computer, Apple would never have happened. In June, it was just an idea. By that Christmas, he'd built something that his friend convinced him to sell, just for fun. The rest, as they say, is history. But this history is full of life lessons, critical decisions, huge triumphs and big mistakes, and all from a self-professed 'engineer's engineer'. For the first time, Steve talks about his childhood, phone hacking pranks, working at Hewlett Packard, meeting George Bush Snr, the life-changing plane crash and teaching. I, WOZ offers readers a unique glimpse into the offbeat and brilliant but ethical mind that conceived the Macintosh. With the help of award-winning journalist Gina Smith, Steve sets the record straight.
