Wired News: Inside the Mac Revolution

Wired News: Inside the Mac Revolution: "Now Hertzfeld has turned his tales of how the Mac was made into a gorgeously illustrated and highly readable coffee table book, Revolution in the Valley: The Insanely Great Story of How the Mac Was Made, published by O'Reilly.
Hertzfeld: I've given the book maybe to nine original Mac team members and it's been generally very positive. The only real negative reaction I've gotten is (from) Jef Raskin. Jef's recollection from what happened is just different from everybody else's and my book doesn't give his version of things. In Jef's version of things, Jef designed everything, but he just didn't. My book confronts that. I think he wishes my book didn't exist."
