The Real Steve
I've lived in the midst of Silicon Valley for four years, and as a former tech reporter, I have to say this is the best dirt on Steve Jobs that I have ever read. Having covered Jobs at his most charismatic -- on stage touting Apple products -- I'll admit it's easy to be seduced by his charm, by the popsicle-colored iMacs, whimsical Think Different commercials, and by general Mac-mania. Many publications have covered just that side of things. But I've also heard the occasional strange rumor that hints at a Jobs different from 'interim' CEO persona. Here, finally, someone took the time to do the extensive homework and piece together a portrait of the *real* Steve Jobs. I have no idea how the author got people to tell him all these great anecdotes, but he did (including Jobs' make-out sessions in the lobby of his own company and the real story behind Pixar), and it's a fun read.

This has to be the best book on Steve Jobs I have ever read. A must have for any Mac Addict. This book shows the readers how Steve felt after being kicked out of Apple and how Steve felt when Apple came crawling back to him!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
