This is an awesome, honest and inspiring account of the world's foremost technology innovator and one of the chief architect's of consumer IT products. Issacson deftly navigates the reader through an interesting, complex story about a man whose vision and marketing capabilities brought us Apple and Pixar, revolutionized the music industry and put the world in the palm of our hands. His manic and obsessive tendencies and abuse of those around him are not hidden, but laid bare for us to understand that, despite his prowess as visionary and businessman, no one is even close to perfect. His soul is unleashed in each chapter and the inevitability of his demise to the horrible cancer that consumed him, reveals to all and to Jobs himself, what made him tick. It is about the power of commitment to principles and ideals and how one person can truly shape and change the world.
In a word, powerful.
