The Register has launched its first Kindle book, “The Life and Times of Steven Paul Jobs”, by Rik Myslewski.

So, if you can’t think what to get that special person - especially if that special person is you - we can help with a discreet few Kb of computer industry history.

As it says right here Rik has followed Apple since the beginning, as an early user, editor of MacAddict, and as San Francisco editor for The Register.

In this Reg book he plots Jobs' career from Silicon Valley Hellion to Apple Mk 1, NeXT, Pixar, Apple Mk II, the iPhone and Cancer. Dick? Prick? Nasty? Mercurial? The world's greatest salesman? Rik considers all these Jobs and more in "The Life and Times of Steve Jobs".

So for just less than the price of an eggnog latte you can ensure a friend knows everything he needs to know about the Jobs, Apple, Pixar and NeXT.

Or you can squirrel it away on your own Kindle or any other device, for when you need to take break from the Xmas mayhem so’s you can ask yourself, “what would Steve do?”

You can....Buy from Amazon...by clicking that button.®
