Apple CEO Tim Cook Blasts New Book on Company As 'Nonsense'

Apple CEO Tim Cook has issued a statement about a new book about the tech giant called, "Haunted Empire," saying it is "nonsense" and fails to capture Apple or former CEO and Co-Founder Steve Jobs.

Here is the full 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."

The book, written by former Wall Street Journal technology reporter Yukari Iwatani Kane, examines the company's performance since Jobs' death and claims that Apple's best days are behind it.

The book is based on 200 interviews, including those of current and former executives and business partners.
