Return to the Little Kingdom: Steve Jobs, the creation of Apple, and how it changed the world
Almost thirty years ago, Michael Moritz, then a young journalist at Time magazine, was allowed exclusive access to the inner workings of a cutting-edge technology company to tell the story of its first decade in business.

Required reading for anyone who has ever listened to music on an iPod, downloaded an app onto an iPhone, browsed on a Mac, or is curious about the distinctive attributes of enduring companies, Return to the Little Kingdom is the only book that explains how Steve Jobs came to found the company that changed our world - twice.
