Sophistication & Simplicity

Two years ago, we partnered with Steve Weyhrich to bring his hardcover book, Sophistication & Simplicity, to the Juiced.GS online store. Since then, many of you have enjoyed autographed editions of this comprehensive history of the Apple II computer.

Steve’s chronicle spans multiple decades across hundreds of pages, making it the ultimate historical reference. Despite exhaustive footnotes and an index, we appreciate that finding just the right person, place, or moment in time in a hardcopy book can be difficult! And with global shipping now being delayed due to the pandemic, getting your hands on the book in the first place can take longer than desired.

That’s why we’re excited to announce the immediate availability of the ebook edition of Sophistication & Simplicity. The PDF, EPUB, and MOBI formats are available as a single bundle for just $15.

Although the ebook edition does not come with the author’s signature, the autographed hardcover is still available — on sale the week of KansasFest 2020 for $10, after which its new, permanent price will be $15.

NOVEMBER 23, 2018 — LEOMINSTER, MA — Sophistication & Simplicity, Dr. Steve Weyhrich’s definitive history of the Apple II, is now available from Juiced.GS publisher Gamebits for the new low price of $20.

First published in 2013 by Variant Press, Sophistication & Simplicity: The Life and Times of the Apple II Computer is an updated and revised history of Steve Wozniak and Steve Job’s most famous personal computer. The book’s 47 chapters are updated and revised from Weyhrich’s online history of the Apple II, which he has maintained since 1991. The book includes an entirely new chapter about KansasFest, the annual Apple II convention that has kept the community alive for over 30 years. Hundreds of black-and-white photos and an extensive index contribute to making Weyhrich’s book an exhaustive history of the Apple II.

“Print publications from Nibble to Computist have long told the story of the Apple II,” said Weyhrich. “Collaborating with Juiced.GS, the longest-running Apple II magazine, to share the printed history of the Apple II was a natural match.”

Each hardcover edition of Sophistication & Simplicity comes signed by the author. Customers also receive a PDF featuring Juiced.GS‘s interviews with the author in May 2003 and March 2013, as well as the magazine’s review of his book in March 2014.
