    Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a 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.

    Jeanne says: "Interesting man"
    "A portrait of an era."

    Story

    Water Isaacson was able to write a unique biography of Steve Jobs and the dawn of the computer revolution. Steve always aimed for the perfect combination of art and technology. He would insist, independent of the cost , in the perfect feel and look of a new device that would transform an industry (ie ipod, iphone, ipad). Steve was able to start again in different technology areas ( ie Pixar) and by applying his M.O. of excellence and innovation resulted in success over and over.
    Like any creative genius his relationships with his staff and Apple's Board was complicated and the author never tries to portrait him as a nice compassionate person . He was always striving for perfection. To follow this road one sometimes have to be ruthless.

    Steve Jobs stands alone as the true revolutionary genius that during the scope of his short life changed the world not once but multiple times.

    I also enjoyed the narrative of Dylan Baker. I am looking forward to listen to his work in the
    future.
