Options: The Secret Life of Steve Jobs by Daniel Lyons

Welcome to the mind—to the world—of Fake Steve Jobs. Fake Steve the counterintuitive management guru: “Obviously we can’t literally put our employees’ lives at risk. But we have to make them feel that way.” Fake Steve the celebrity hobnobber: “I like Bono. He’s the only person I know who’s more self-absorbed than I am.”

Options is the book that had the critics howling—with laughter:

“A voice for our own digital age....Mac-slappingly funny.”—Newsweek.com
“Hilarious.”—New York Times
“There’s a laugh-out-loud moment on nearly each one of the book’s pages.”—Wall Street Journal
“Wickedly funny.”—San Francisco Chronicle

From the very first page, I began to chuckle. The fake Steve is narcissistic and self absorbed... you can't help but laugh at him! I wonder if that is so different from the real Steve? Daniel Lyons does a nice job of weaving together fact and fiction and creates a very interesting and funny character. It embodies the phrase "Don't let the truth get in the way of a good story."

That's what the Wall Street Journal said in today's paper about Options and I have to agree! It's over-the-top, somewhat ridiculous, and totally fun. If you're looking for a fun read, or a great book as a gift, you can't go wrong with Options!
