This book was great. Absolutely great. I think we all have our perceptions of who Steve Jobs was, and I think we all base that on so little information. Walter Isaacson did a fantastic job of representing Jobs is a fair way that showed that he really was a jerk, and that working for him was hard, but explained the why's and how's that we don't all take under consideration. Yes, you need to be thick skinned to work for him, but by working for him you also stretched your capabilities and abilities and learned to make fantastic products.
His life was unique and his history was so interesting. His childhood and young adult years were nothing of what you'd expect from someone who 'owns' the technology world.
Definitely recommend this one. It was thought provoking, inspiring, interesting and enjoyable.
