Steve Jobs was an extraordinary person and truly a great man but perhaps also the hardest individual to work with in the entire industry. The book is truthful to the point of ruthlessness when censuring his person and uses superlatives generously while recounting his work. Steve Jobs has altered our lives in a primary way. The book not only encompasses Steve Jobs life but also the story of Silicon Valley and provides sound insights into running a corporation no matter the size. I feel like the book is a little soon after his death but I feel as a start of what is sure to be a plethora of books on Steve Jobs Isaacson did a good job.
