Walter Isaacon has produced an excellent portrayal of the life of Steve Jobs. Three days ago, I knew next to nothing about Jobs. I now consider him to be a hero (though I wouldn’t want to go to dinner with him.)
I was inspired to read the book because I love the Apple devices I use. The MacBook, the iPhone, iMovie, and iTunes all have a tremendous effect on my life. I love them and in fact, much of career has been made possible because the iPhone allows me to be so mobile. If it weren’t for the MacBook, this website wouldn’t exist. So Apple (Steve Jobs specifically) has played a vital role in how my life has evolved and where it may go.
I read the 600 page book in 3 days. This time has been reminiscent of the days I spent reading Long Walk to Freedom by Nelson Mandela or For Whom the Bell Tolls by Ernest Hemingway. It’s intensely interesting and it keeps your attention all the way through.
This is a story that I suggest to everyone. If every person on earth read this book, the human condition might improve.
