Are you a budding author? The next Stephen King? Or an author currently looking to cut out the middle man as you rollout your own books? It looks like your time has come Apple has released information on self-publishing for the iBookstore!
As we all look forward to going to sleep tonight with visions of Apple tablets running through our heads, there’s a rumor floating around that Cupertino may be joining hands with bookseller Barnes & Noble to bring e-books to the device.
In the May issue of Mac|Life, we interviewed Leander Kahney, managing editor of Wired News, contributer to the Cult of Mac blog, and author of the new book Inside Steve’s Brain (Portfolio, $23.95). The book, in bookstores now, is part management theory text, part history of Apple and technology, and part Steve Jobs biography—a lively, enthralling look into the people and processes behind the success of Apple, and a glimpse into the motivations and passions of the man who guides and controls the company like no other CEO in business today. We spoke with Kahney to peek inside his brain and find out what it was like to write about the biggest personality in the computer industry. Here’s the full transcript.
