In 1984, The Little Kingdom: The Private Story of Apple Computer told the story of Apple’s 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.
A former journalist, Michael Moritz is now a venture capitalist with Sequoia Capital and a former member of the board of directors of Google, Inc. In 2007 he appeared in the Time 100, and in 2008 and 2009 was ranked #2 on Forbes’ “Midas List” of top dealmakers in the technology industry. He lives in San Francisco with his wife and two children.
