Lashinsky’s cover-story subjects in FORTUNE have included Apple, Hewlett-Packard and Google. He also has written in-depth articles on Wells Fargo, Intel, Oracle, eBay, Twitter, and the venture-capital industry, as well as on diverse topics from San Francisco politics to oil-exploration technology to the post-Katrina economic recovery of New Orleans. His book, Inside Apple: How America’s Most Admired – and Secretive – Company Really Works, is scheduled to be published in January, 2012, by Hachette Book Group’s Business Plus imprint.

Prior to joining FORTUNE, Lashinsky was a columnist for The San Jose Mercury News and TheStreet.com. Before moving to California, he was a reporter and editor for Crain’s Chicago Business.
