Product description

Review

"A remarkable tale... the story it tells is compelling, even addictive--almost as addictive as the iPhone itself."--Wall Street Journal

"Like the best historians, Merchant... unpacks the history of the iPhone in a way that makes it seem both inevitable in its outline and surprising in its details."--The Guardian

"Apple's culture of secrecy is no match for Brian Merchant in The One Device....Merchant tells a far richer story than I--having covered Apple for years as a journalist--have seen before... The iPhone masquerades as a thing not made by human hands. Merchant's book makes visible that human labor, and in the process dispels some of the fog and reality distortion that surround the iPhone."--Lev Grossman, New York Times Book Review

"A fascinating story."--Marketplace

"Merchant does the important work of excavating and compiling large numbers of details and anecdotes about the development of the iPhone, many of them previously unrecorded... Merchant tells a far richer story than the outside world has seen before."--Minneapolis Star-Tribune

"Brian Merchant takes readers on an epic journey."--Parade

"Brian Merchant gives us a rare look inside Apple, chronicling the development of the iPhone with details about everything from the selection of raw materials to the product's famous launch event."--Gizmodo

"A wild ride."--San Francisco Chronicle

"An excellent book."--Tyler Cowen, Marginal Revolution

"The One Device is a tour de force. Brian Merchant has dug into the iPhone like no other reporter before him, traveling the world to find the untold stories behind the device's creation and uncover the very real human costs that come with making the iPhone. Packed with vivid detail, the book carries the reader from one unexpected revelation to the next with a fast-paced edge and heaps of analytical insight."--Ashlee Vance, New York Times bestselling author of Elon Musk
