We've posted about book recommendations for sci-fi fans, and light summer reading ... but what about books for geeks?

Geeks Are Sexy blog has got this one covered in Patrick Biz' post about the 10 Must-Read Books for Geeks. The two part series began with a bang:

iWoz: Computer Geek to Cult Icon: How I Invented the Personal Computer, Co-Founded Apple, and Had Fun Doing It

If you want to understand how the Apple fairy tale began in the seventies, then iWoz is a must read. This is the personal story of Steve Wozniak, inventor of the Apple computer. This book explains the long process that led Wozniak to create the first affordable computer, how he met Steve Jobs, and how they founded the Apple empire. This easy-to-read book reveals a captivating story aimed at everyone interested by the debut of personal computing.

iWoz and the Google Story were two of the dullest most poorly written books I've ever read.

Very little info on how Apple or Google got it's mojo, and tons and tons and tons of dribble that at times, seem to be in the wrong book.

Can't recommend strongly enough - DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME on those two books (unless of course you're the type of person that likes to watch paint dry, grass grow, etc).
