Based on more than forty interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than 100 family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson set down the riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing. Isaacson's portrait touched hundreds of thousands of readers.
A biography of Steve Jobs as told by him, his family, colleagues, friends, former friends, rivals and competitors where Jobs himself put"nothing is off-limit" and asked to have no control over the contents. He was a person you love to hate, but at the same time you hate to hate him. Never has a biography be read without feeling melancholic like this one. May be the only biography that tries to be honest, not whitewashing that facts.
