If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to work behind the Genius Bar, then Bartending: Memoirs of an Apple Genius is the book for you.
Written by Stephen Hackett, proprietor of 512 Pixels and former lead Genius in Memphis, Bartending is a collection of short, often humorous, stories that offer some insight into the harassed and hectic life of Apple Retail. Stephen is a true old-school Mac user, so most of the stories are from the days of PowerPC Macs and the original iPhone.
After reading this, you won’t look at a Genius the same way again. Despite the job title, they’re just everyday people who get paid to deal with hundreds of angry people all clamoring for free repairs.
