I highly recommend the 2011 biography. Even if you have no interest in Apple or Jobs. It’s a fascinating and very well written book.
Surprisingly, Jobs cooperated with this book. He admired Isaacson.
It was published 19 days after Jobs’ death.
Steve asked for no control over what was written nor even the right to read it before it was published. He put nothing off-limits. He encouraged the people he knew to speak honestly. And Jobs speaks candidly, sometimes brutally so, about the people he worked with and competed against.
His friends, foes, and colleagues provide an unvarnished view of the passions, perfectionism, obsessions, artistry, devilry, and compulsion for control that shaped his approach to business and the innovative products that resulted.
