Books to recommend

For people like me who are not necessarily techies but admire beautiful and efficient technology, iPod Evolution may be an interesting book. I have pre-ordered it.

Earlier I liked Steven Levy's book The Perfect Thing, (seems to not be out in ebook format, but it does exist as audiobook) also the story of the iPod, but with Levy's particular style, which is highly respectful (a rarity amongst journalistic writers) and entertaining. I also recommend his past books Hackers and Insanely Great. ("Hackers" is not about cyber-criminals, but about exceptional computer pioneers.)

Update: looking for more Levy to enjoy, I found this collection of historic Wired articles on Steve Jobs. And another called Wired: Icons.
