Don't bother with this despicable piece of crap. It is not worth your TIME or money. It's just another example of people trying to make money off of the death of Steve Jobs. There is nothing new here, either in the photos or the text.

But what is totally UNFORGIVABLE, in my opinion, was the careless way it was produced. TIME took my all-time favorite photo of a young Steve Jobs and enlarged it to cover a 2-page spread. But TIME didn't even bother to account for the binding of the pages at the spine where the two pages meet, and a substantial portion of Steve's face is completely missing! Book binding is not rocket science, but this mess didn't even bother with typical STANDARD PUBLISHING PROCEDURES, WHICH SHOULD ALWAYS INCLUDE PROOFING & ACCOUNT FOR THE GUTTER AREA ON SPREADS!!

How utterly disrespectful to Steve Jobs to cut off his face like that. I hope TIME doesn't make a dime off of this shoddy, ill-conceived, greed-motivated, poorly produced mess!

Shame on TIME Magazine.

I WANT MY MONEY BACK!

This volume presents many rare photos of Steve and plenty of great product photography, along with well written copy on the genius of Steve Jobs. I caution potential buyers of this book, and any other products from Amazon, to accept that you "get what you pay for" when dealing with them. My copy of "TIME Steve Jobs' arrived with dented corners, a scratched dust jacket, and black soot covering the entire book. Amazon needs to redesign their packaging to better protect its contents from damage. If you care about the condition of your books, I would suggest buying from a place that cares about delivering products in excellent condition even if you have to pay full price.

Words that could be used to describe Jobs include perfectionist, self-confident genius, innovator, great - but not nice, controlling, artistic, and seeking simplicity. He's appeared on 8 covers of Time magazine, yet it's still difficult to summarize what he brought us. The original Apple computer was designed and built by co-founder Wozniak, who also provided the software. Pixar was entirely the work of software and animation geniuses already there before Jobs acquired it. There were cell phones, music players, and tablets on the market before Apple entered those markets. As for Apple retail stores revolutionizing the industry, I doubt it; the 'secret sauce' in those stores is the large number of enthusiastic Apple fans.

Time makes another attempt to explain Jobs in this memorial issue. Readers learn he was a difficult child (not hard to imagine) and fortunate to have supportive adoptive parents, that he learned very little in college - even in the months that he attended Reed College informally, that he was sometimes inconsistent - denying paternity of daughter Lisa, despite resenting being 'abandoned' by his birth father, that he made the bulk of his fortune from the sale of Pixar to Disney for $7.4 billion in 2006 (Disney had the opportunity to buy it for $10 million, but Katzenbach nixed the deal - maybe this was why Disney paid Katzenbach 'only' $250 million after being forced out of the company). He was also always learning from others - eg. original Apple investor Mike Markula and John Scully, even though they later became opponents, those on Apple's board (especially Jerry York, former CFO of Chrysler and IBM, and Larry Ellison, Oracle CEO), and others (eg. Andrew Grove, former Intel CEO). Jobs also had a knack for attracting and usually retaining 'A' players.

Each article was great, but after reading TIME-LIFE’s Edison with the richness of material available it could have been tied together better.
