Steve JobsSteve Jobs by Walter Isaacson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


The biography of one of the most important and influential people of recent times. Isaacson seems to have talked to almost everyone he could from Jobs' family, friends, colleagues, and enemies to get insight into his thinking and ethics. Jobs was an incredibly demanding perfectionist, a control freak who demanded a lot from himself and his colleagues - so much in fact that he made them often do the impossible simply because he believed it could be done (his so-called "reality distortion field"). But he was volatile and his blinders to reality would lead to difficult family situations and ultimately his death from cancer. He is a fascinating character who left an indelible mark on the world and the book does a good job showing who he is, warts, triumphs, and all.
