    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.

    Story

    There are no surprises in "Steve Jobs." His history, management style, and persona were legend in Silicon Valley before this biography was written. Okay, the relationship with Joan Baez surprised me, but that was it. And, who would turn down an opportunity like Ms. Baez?

    Don't expect any deep business or personality analyses in this biography. The stories are interesting, but the writing tedious. The author's lack of technological knowledge prevented him from painting a fuller picture of Steve Jobs in context.

    I hope Mr. Isaacson's other biographies are better written than "Steve Jobs." The writing is repetitive, unpolished, and rushed to press without sufficient editing. Did I say repetitive? If I had a dollar every time the phrase "Jobs was furious" was used, I could retire.

    The reader was patronizing, sluggish, and sounded as though he were reading a children's bedtime story.
