Any news on the paperback release? I don't feel like paying $35 for a book.

I'm with you on this, Benni. As much as I want to read the book I don't warrant paying that amount of money for it. I think the people behind the book are being a little greedy.

I bought it in the iBooks store for $16.99. So far I've only read through the introduction and am about to start on the first chapter. Interesting background on the author and his relationship with Steve.

I guess I'll keep an eye on this thread to see what people think of the book and maybe I'll change my mind. I was all exited till I saw the price, that's when I put the book back.

where, on my phone? No thanks, if you wanna buy me an iPad then I'll e-downloaded ;)
Actually, reading on the iPhone isn't all that bad. Its nice when you are not near a computer, book or an iPad and want to read a few chapters or something.

I started reading it on my iPhone too, not bad at all. I just set the background color to sepia because it's easier on my eyes than the white background.

Considering adding my books to my 4S, currently I've been keeping them on my iPad. Hmmm.....

I tried reading books on my phone, it's not for me. I need to try some audio books.

I preordered the book from amazon. It was under $20. Haven't received it yet but it should be a good read.
