    This is an amazing inside view into the life of one of the great businessmen of our era. A must read. The thing that struck me most about Steve Jobs was that he was an incredible perfectionist. He was a craftsman, and wanted the computers he built to be beautiful and amazing and useful. He believed ...

    Steve Jobs was a damn dirty hippie. He didn't much like to shower or wear shoes. He believed his diet kept him from getting stinky, not true apparently. In fact he was quite odd and obsessive about his diets, he would go on kicks where he would eat nothing but carrots for long periods of time until ...

    Never expected to find this much enjoyment reading a biography. Isaacson has truly done a wonderful job with this book. For those who are too busy to read the entire book, please try to grab a quick read of the last two chapters of the book at a book store or airport or someplace - These chapters ar...

    When I was at the halfway point I became struck by what a jerk SJ was. Yes, he was brilliant and all that. But he seemed to view other humans as nothing more than ants in his ant farm, sub-biologicals that he could squish whenever he felt like it. And did.Some might say that his gifts to tech develo...

    My background is as a post-1979 punk rocker. So naturally I view all dope-gorging smelly long hair Dylan-worshiping hippies with a certain amount of suspicion and disdain.The author shows, on a page-by-page basis, what an insufferable asshole Steve Jobs was. I'm not exaggerating. But the book left m...

    Executive summary of Isaacson's "Steve Jobs":- Remove everything that is unnecessary.- Be ruthless about building an A team.- Make stuff you believe in.- Collaborate often through vigorous discussion.- Push yourself and others to do the impossible now.- Make great experiences by simplifying.- Own yo...

    Update This is a very interesting view of Steve Jobs by the mother of his daughter, Lisa (although he denied he was her father, despite paternity tests) and his childhood sweetheart. She doesn't think the film goes far enough in depicting his character truthfully. I am sure that what she writes in h...

    I had to be convinced by a GR friend to read this book, similarly to how Isaacson had to be convinced to write it.Back in 2004, Steve Jobs approached Isaacson and asked if he was interested in writing Jobs' biography. Isaacson declined several times, thinking that it was too soon to write one and th...
