No need to wonder what CEO Tim Cook thinks about the newest Apple book. In a statement to CNBC, Cook slams “Haunted Empire: Apple After Steve Jobs.” Here’s Cook’s complete statement:
This nonsense belongs with some of the other books I've read about Apple. It fails to capture Apple, Steve, or anyone else in the company. Apple has over 85,000 employees that come to work each day to do their best work, to create the world's best products, to put their mark in the universe and leave it better than they found it. This has been the heart of Apple from day one and will remain at the heart for decades to come. I am very confident about our future.Former Wall Street Journal reporter Yukari Iwatani Kane interviewed more than 200 business partners and executives for the book. As the title suggests, Kane argues that Apple’s best days are behind it as the company has struggled to adjust to life without co-founder and former CEO Jobs. The book can be purchased now through iTunes or Amazon.com. While the iBooks edition is $14.99, the Kindle version will just set you back $12.79.
