See the darker side of one of the world’s most influential businessmen.

Steve Jobs (1955–2011) was known for his business prowess, his inventiveness, and his search for perfection in both form and function. Here is the other side of one of the world’s most famous—and infamous—business and technology magnates. In 1991, Jobs was considered for an appointed position on the US President’s Export Council, a position he accepted after the FBI performed this extensive background check (totaling 191 pages).

This release consists of the FBI’s 1991 background investigation of Jobs for that position, as well as a 1985 investigation of a bomb threat against Apple. Declassified for the first time in February 2012, this is a must-have collector’s item. It includes:

Interviews with friends and family members
Stories of drug use
Allegations against his moral character

Everyone with an interest in one of America’s greatest entrepreneurs will find this book revealing.
