There have been many books - on a large and small scale - about Steve Jobs, one of the most famous CEOs in history. But this book is different from all the others. Becoming Steve Jobs takes on and breaks down the existing myth and stereotypes about Steve Jobs. The conventional, one-dimensional view of Jobs is that he was half genius, half jerk from youth, an irascible and selfish leader who slighted friends and family alike.

Moving, honest, enlightening and inspiring! This is what the "official" biography should have been. Can't wait for more insights on Steve and going forward Tim Cook and Jony Ive.
