Product Details


Praise for the first edition of Cult of Mac:

“Kahney embarked on his journey to chronicle the weird world of Mac addicts last year, and I think he nailed it. If you have iPod-clutching, Macintosh-using, Woz-loving, Newton-worshiping cultists in your circle of friends, get ’em this book. But even if you you’re not a HyperCard-carrying member of the club, the book is worth a look. Kahney has uncovered some real characters on the scene.”
—San Francisco Chronicle

“Mr. Kahney’s informal history of the Mac is interspersed with trivia and delightful details, and intriguing photos, and is wrapped up in an entertaining style. This is a coffee table book that only a geek might love — but it’s also one lots of people will enjoy reading.”
—Washington Times

“This account of Macintosh fanaticism will strike a chord with anyone who’s ardently defended (or cursed) an operating system… sure to end up on Quadra-based coffee tables everywhere.”
—Wired Magazine
