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.

"Steve Jobs" book cover

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.

To learn more about Isaacson’s writing process and friendship with Steve Jobs, watch Jon Stewart’s interview with Walter Isaacson from October 2011.

You can borrow Steve Jobs from the Library’s Popular Collection, or request a copy on Interlibrary Loan.
