Some brief thoughts on @WalterIsaacson’s book on Steve Jobs. Great Biography of An Extreme Individual

Walter Isaacson’s biography of Steve Jobs is a fantastic read, both engaging and revealing in many details. What emerges is a portrait of a genius — but also a quirky person with many contradictions. On one hand, the visionary who brought us the Mac, the iPhone, the iTunes Store and many other exceptional innovations but also the taskmaster who was incredibly demanding and difficult to interact with — someone who would get upset at the smallest details. Of particular interest to fans of Apple products: there are many tidbits on how particular features (and bugs) got included — from the oval on the MacIntosh dialogue boxes to the band circling the iPhone 4. There is also much revealing information on how the CEO of a huge public company concealed his cancer from so many people and about the intricate boardroom interplay deposing a leader and then his comeback. Altogether, a great read that I would recommend to anyone.
