Had seen a few press items heralding this, and there had been mention that it would also be available on Amazon.com, so I followed the link. My choice was right there: Kindle Edition or Paperback. Could have had the paperback version in a couple of days with Amazon Prime, but I wanted to see how well the images would hold up in Kindle format, so I went for it.
The cover is said to be illustrated by DC Comics cover artist Joe Phillips, and manages to work as grey scale reasonably on my Kindle 2, but from there things head as south as the apple falling on Steve Jobs' head as depicted on the cover. As one moves through the pages, one can dimly see the title page noting that CW Cooke was the writer, and that it was penciled by J. Christopher Schmidt. Beyond that, it becomes a mess; a shame as I would have been interested in seeing how well Chris Schmidt's illustrations held out.
The problem here is not the Kindle, it's the people who format these things for eBooks in general without thinking about how the reader will be able to see them. Some companies have figured it out already, but it's clear that Bluewater Productions has not, and that's to their own detriment.
Many of these pages have three panels, and if they had tried to separate then as opposed to clumping them together, the graphics and text would have been readable.Read more ›

s great but a little hard to see but out of all it was a great asome book
A good storybook, but in poor quality. It doesn't fit the iPad screen well and won't zoom to fit, making it harder to read.
But other than that - good book
The book is well written and I enjoyed reading them. It has a lot of humor and bought several copies of his books. Thank you!Published on March 8, 2013 by Lydia H. Davis
I am a big fan of Mr Jobs. It revealed some facts that are not written on other books. I think it is an awesome read.Published on October 1, 2012 by Morgen
CW Cooke has turned this comic into a comprehensive biography. I enjoyed the artwork as well. Hats off to Mr. Cooke for his work on this very enjoyable book.Published on May 21, 2012 by Mark Penn
