Via CNBC‘s Closing Bell, Apple CEO Tim Cook has just issued the following statement about ex-WSJ reporter Yukari Iwatani Kane’s new book (Haunted Empire: Apple After Steve Jobs):

This nonsense belongs with some of the other books I’ve read about Apple 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.

MacDailyNews Take: As we wrote just yesterday:

The title of the thing rather blatantly hints that it’s a contrived POS hit piece.
