Walter Isaacson has written a wonderful, captivating book about Steve Jobs the inventor, entrepreneur and man. I am as impressed with Isaacson as I am Jobs, having compiled the information based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs over two years along with interviews with over a hundred people who knew Jobs. I thought he captured the interesting, frustrating, genius that was Steve Jobs, the man who changed our world. At 600 pages the book requires perseverance which is rewarded with the history of the roll out of Toy Story, including the struggles with Woody’s personality, interesting insights into Bill Gate’s personality among other fascinating details from our shared history as Americans in an age of rapid technological advancement .
I thoroughly enjoyed the book and want to read Isaacson’s biography Einstein: His Life and Universe next.
