Publisher Description

The Bondi Blue iMac G3 — and the family of colorful computers that came after it — brought some much-needed clarity and excitement to the Mac line. It also bought Apple time to integrate NeXT's technology and build Mac OS X from the ashes of the aging Mac OS. This book is about those products, and how Apple pulled itself back on track after the disastrous years of the 1990s.

    Amazing work!

    The detail, photos, and story were such a joy! Very well done.

    Delightful trip down translucent memory lane

    Really enjoyed this well-written, well-illustrated book. This era represents a really dramatic and fascinating time in Apple's history, and most people have forgotten this time by now.

    Interesting, but not a lot there

    Maybe it's because I already knew a fair amount about Apple history, but I didn't find this book to provide a lot of detail. It was interesting to hear about the iMac and the evolution of Mac models. I found the discussion about Mac OS X and its origins in NeXTStep to be pretty light on detail. The book also seemed disjointed and hard to connect Bondi to Apple in the way the author suggests.
