iSteve – The Book of Jobs – The Exclusive Biography
Update (20110705) The book has been renamed ‘Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson.’
“The Greatest Innovator of His Generation”
Here’s what Amazon has to say:
“From bestselling author Walter Isaacson comes the landmark biography of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. In iSteve: The Book of Jobs, Isaacson provides an extraordinary account of Jobs’ professional and personal life. Drawn from three years of exclusive and unprecedented interviews Isaacson has conducted with Jobs as well as extensive interviews with Jobs’ family members, key colleagues from Apple and its competitors, iSteve is the definitive portrait of the greatest innovator of his generation.”
