This is such a great write, that it's nearly impossible to put down. If you have enjoyed Steve's journey in life and career, you'll likely have trouble putting it down as well. Enjoy!

This is THE real and only STEVE JOBS bio. If you wished to know -and learn from- him then simply READ the book.

I have not put it down since I bought the book. The story is compelling and the life of Steve Jobs is such a mixture of total success and personal failure.

I bought the book and believed I would casually get to know Steve Jobs better. I have not put the book down since I bought it. Steve is a complex and flawed individual who had personal demons and genius together in a way only a genius like Walter Isaacson could explain. He holds nothing back in showing us the price of success. Steve had the courage to allow Walter Isaacson the freedom to speak to all of his friends and enemies and not interfere in the content of this biography. At times I am finding that the dark side of this man dominated his life and yet the great achievements he produced will be the legend he leaves behind. Read this book. I wonder who will play him in the movie? It is ironic that both Steve Jobs and Bill Gates were born in 1955 and dropped out of college (Bill Gates went back to complete his degree).

Steve was one of the most influential men of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Steve was just six years older than me and I grew up in the Bay Area with extended family members living in Cupertino. Two of my cousins have worked for Apple for years, and I can recall during the tough years how they were laid off multiple times during the 1980's and 1990's, yet it was Apple Computer that they always longed to return and so they did. Their loyalty is astounding. Then came the return of Steve Jobs. Apple was getting back on track. Apple never looked back. Steve announced that Apple would start building Mac computers with Intel processors. Then in 2001, Steve took a dysfunctional marketplace of digital audio players and created the iPod digital audio player and the iTunes digital music marketplace -- finally, a legitimate place to download quality music tracks. The iPod was a long term big cash money maker for Apple, thanks to Steve. It got Apple back in the game of innovation. Then came Steve's next big creation in 2007, the iPhone which created a whole new market for "smartphone" technology. And in recent years came Steve's creation of the iPad which, once again, created a whole new market for "tablet" computer technology. Steve was simply amazing, a magical human being. I type this message to Steve on my Macbook Air -- just another one of his fantastic inventions! Steve, I will deeply miss you, and the world has lost a great innovator. Rest in peace.

I cannot decide if I should read this on my Kindle or get the hardcover. Any advice?

Me too! This is one of those books that can deserve the tactility of the "real" book...

JOBS had a vision to carry many to the finish line.
What's Next: Apple ITV?
Who's Next: Jeff Bezo's - Amazon?
There's a book about Jobs... When's The Movie?
Jobs was a pirate and innovator with Woz and a leader with Apple right to the end. He left a Legacy with the Great Ones.

I just turned last page, read the book very fast. Fascinating story, and indirectly is about much more than Steve Jobs as a person, also about IT industry development during the last 30-40 years. I really recommend this book! A lot can be learned from this book.
