Anyone know who is Ron Wayne? He is the person who sometimes known as a third co-founder of Apple, Inc. Ron Wayne has just published his new autobiography titled Adventures of an Apple Founder: Atari, Apple, Aerospace & Beyond. The Autography book is said to be available from today on Amazon and also hit the Apple’s iBookStore for iOS device users. In my own view, Wayne is one of the luckiest people of the world, who lost such a big opportunity just for few bucks. It was reported that he leaved the Apple few days after forming of Apple INC, and sold out his owned 10% share of Apple just for $800 to someone.

From the book’s description:

There is much more to the story of Ron Wayne than his brief involvement with the Apple Computer Company (before it re-formed as Apple Computer Inc.).

In the spring of 1976 while working as chief draftsman and product development engineer at the video game maker Atari, Ron assisted a co-worker with the subtle intricacies of forming a small business.It was with Ron’s natural sensibilities, experiences, and skills honed over a lifelong career in many disciplines that he offered himself openly as a resource to two much-younger entrepreneurs: Steve Jobs & Steve Wozniak. These same traits would drive Ron’s decision to leave a short time later.

It is one of life’s profound realities that people rarely recognize “history” while they are in the midst of making it. The events that transpired that spring would come to define such a case.

Adventures of an Apple Founder offers insight into the experiences that define the man whose passion for engineering and design spans over three quarters of a century, half a dozen industries, and a lifetime of adventures!


Wayne’s isn’t the only Apple founder’s biography to be released in 2011. Steve Jobs’ long awaited bio from Walter Isaacson will be released November 21st.
