Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Wired news editor Leander Kahney follows up his bestselling The Cult of Mac with The Cult of iPod, a comprehensive look at how Apple's hit iPod is changing music, culture, and listening behavior. The Cult of iPod includes the exclusive back story of the iPod's development; looks at the many ways iPod's users pay homage to their devices; and investigates the quirkier aspects of iPod culture, such as iPod-jacking (strangers plugging into each other's iPods to discover new music), as well as the growing legions of MP3Js (regular folks who use their iPods to become DJs). Four-color throughout.

Book News Annotation:

The author of The Cult of Mac and Wired News reporter chronicles the development of Apple's breakthrough digital music player and the culture and accessories that it has spawned. Quirky illustrations and comments on and by iPod devotees (e.g., fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld) reinforce his observation that the little white box is revolutionizing how we listen to music.
