With a foreword by Steve Jobs, the book “1998: The Year of Thinking Different.” features the Think different manifesto and two-page layouts of many of the Apple Geniuses (cultural icons) featured in the Think different series.
The book begins with the Think different “manifesto:”
Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do. Think different.
The book includes the following Apple Geniuses:
Albert Einstein Mahatma Gandhi Pablo Picasso Alfred Hitchcock Rosa Parks Bob Dylan Buzz Aldrin Muhammad Ali Thomas Edison Martha Graham Jim Henson Maria Callas Dalai Lama Amelia Earhart Ansel Adams Joan Baez Paul Rand Miles Davis Lucille Ball & Desi Arnaz John Lennon & Yoko Ono
The final page of the book states, “This is a limited-edition publication to commemorate the first year of the ‘Think different’ series. It is not for sale or resale, and is only available to employees/affiliates of Apple Computer, Inc.”
The book is paperback, measures 11 x 14 inches, and is printed in black and white.
When the original iMac shipped in 1998, it had a unique design never before seen in a personal computer. Apple also took the opportunity to redesign the internal packaging of the iMac, down to the book of CDs that shipped with every iMac.
The iMac CD book had cardboard front and back covers in bright yellow. Its white pages with clear fronts each held one CD. The iMac shipped with a bright orange Software Restore CD, a bright orange Software Install CD, and various third-party CDs, including Williams-Sonoma Good Cooking, Quicken 98, and others.
