Book of the Week: Steve Jobs
This week’s Book of the Week is Walter Isaacson’s Steve Jobs, a 2011 biography of the late Apple CEO & founder which was published just after his death.
Walter Isaacson is known for writing compelling biographies of Benjamin Franklin, Henry Kissinger, and Albert Einstein, and in his latest book he’s painted a well-rounded, moving portrait of Steve Jobs as a brilliant innovator and as a flawed human being.
This blogger’s review of the biography (and, fittingly, the audio book version too) presents a thoughtful and personal analysis of Steve Jobs. How has Steve Jobs affected your life? Your education? The way you listen to music? Lots of food for thought in this biography.
