Ken Kocienda: "Creative Selection: Inside Apple's Design Process During the Golden Age of Steve Jobs" ⚓
I had the great fortune to work alongside Ken for a short while, and he is one of the few people who really have a tight grasp on what Apple and its products are all about. I'm not through the book yet, but even just after the first chapter it is a clear recommendation if you want some insights on how product decisions came to fruition back then.
Ken is a fantastic inspiring public speaker and as such I'm very happy he narrated the audible version himself.
There is a lot of non-commercial Ken based content out there as well, all worth your time and worth pointing you towards it.
