    Highly Recommended!

    I couldn't put it down. A fascinating look at a modern eccentric innovative business giant. He's certainly in the category of Henry Ford,Thomas Edison, Ben Franklin, etc. In fact I'm now reading Ben Franklin's biography written by Walter Isaacson. For two reasons, I like Walter's style, and it's about another unusual pioneer.

    Walter Isaacson makes a biography interesting. Certainly Jobs was that kind of person. From my perspective, he's not at all a role model, but deserves credit for what he accomplished and his impact on our culture and technology. You almost feel like you're learning about a crzed, obsessed artist, which I think deep down in side Jobs was.

    A great American innovator and inventor, not a saint!

    Do yourself a favor and read it.

    Oh, before I forget, I read it on my iPad but via a Barnes & Noble, Nook, iPad app. Go figure!

    Larry, Chicago suburbs.
