Diary from the original author, Jordan Mechner, written from 1985 onwards, detailing the creation of Prince of Persia and the surrounding going ons in Broderbund along with a good deal of personal details.

It's a very interesting read. I started it two nights ago and had it all read 24 hours later (it's 76 pages). Kinda like the old Zzap diaries, although this one is low on technical details and more of an insight to game development in a big company in the 80's

It's amazing how low the sales were at the beginning, guess he should have released it on the C64 instead of the Apple II! :)

It's also available as an eBook, although it does cost $7.99, wish I'd known about the eBook before reading all 76 pages on the website x-)
