IWoz : computer geek to cult icon : how I invented the personal computer, co-founded Apple, and had fun doing it by Steve Wozniak( Book )

38 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 1,728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Once upon a time, computers looked like big, alien vending machines. They had large screens, cryptic switches, huge boxes, and odd lights. But in 1975, a young engineering wizard named Steve Wozniak had an idea: What if you combined computer circuitry with a regular typewriter keyboard and a video screen? The result was the first true personal computer, the Apple I. Widely affordable and easily understood, Wozniak's invention has been rapidly transforming our world ever since. His life--before and after Apple--is a "home-brew" mix of brilliant discovery and adventure, as an engineer, a concert promoter, a fifth-grade teacher, a philanthropist, and an irrepressible prankster. From the invention of the first personal computer to the rise of Apple as an industry giant, iWoz presents a no-holds-barred, rollicking, firsthand account of the humanist inventor who ignited the computer revolution.--From publisher description
The genomics age : how DNA technology is transforming the way we live and who we are by Gina Smith( Book )

"Since the advent of life, every creature has been beholden to its genetic blueprint. But mankind has never fully accepted the design, and human history is woven out of our perpetual attempts to redraw it. The latest manifestations of this quest are major developments in DNA technology. These advances have presented us with an almost inconceivable array of opportunities - and with them a daunting vortex of ethical and social issues." "The Genomics Age is your guide to this startling new reality, a very near future in which science will empower us to make decisions with profound biological, moral, economic, and societal implications. Gina Smith explains the history and technology behind these advances, and probes the fundamental questions they pose."--Jacket
