Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson.. Yes, read it. By the same biographer who brought you Franklin and Einstein. Did Steve Jobs invent bi-focals? No. Did he come up with the theory of Relativity? No. But still, read it. We lost a real hero.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"After Steve Jobs anointed Walter Isaacson as his authorized biographer in 2009, he took Mr. Isaacson to see the Mountain View, Calif., house in which he had lived as a boy. He pointed out its “clean design” and “awesome little features.” He praised the developer, Joseph Eichler, who built more than 11,000 homes in California subdivisions, for making an affordable product on a mass-market scale."

The New York Times

"The new biography on Steve Jobs has a major product reveal: Apple may drop a full-fledged television. Right now, the company sells a set-top box that company officials have called a “hobby.” But his comments in Walter Isaacson’s authorized biography — which was reviewed by The Washington Post — hint at something more to come."
