Steve Jobs

I got the Autobiography last week while traveling. I always new what kind of genius he was, but he is also a bit of a douche. Anyone else reading this?

OK, "Douche" isn't exactly what I meant. I should probably clarify "asshole" instead.

The author did a great job of not burying Jobs demons (Jobs asked him not too) when he wrote it.

He was away for 12 years for being an A. Hole. Lost a power struggle.

Isaacson is one of the best biographers in the business. I was surprised he was doing a bio of someone that had not been dead for a couple centuries! lol

I haven't read his others, but I will after this. It was a great view on someone I never thought would be that much different than my views about him.
