Apple CEO: New Book is ‘Nonsense’


Apple CEO Tim Cook has issued a statement calling a new book about the tech giant “nonsense,” according to

In the book Haunted Empire, former Wall Street Journal tech reporter Yukari Iwatani claims the tech giant’s best days are behind it. Cook says the book fails to capture Apple or Steve Jobs, the company’s former CEO and co-founder.

Here is Cook’s 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. We’ve always had many doubters in our history. They only make us stronger.
