Steve Jobs has been relevant because what he's done, what he's said, and the way we views and approaches things. This book is a collection of articles written ABOUT Steve Jobs BY journalists who hope to engage an audience by sticking idealizing superlatives to the man in question, but not really provinding much insight into the real clockwork of his mind.

If you want to learn something from Steve Jobs, skip this book full of journalistic vanity and self-serving, empty narrative and go read his speech at Stanford, his interviews with Playboy and Wired, watch the Apple keynotes on YouTube. All this content is available to you for free on the Internet, why pay 10 bucks for the print equivalent of link bait? Use that money to rent Pirates of Silicon Valley instead and you'll still be able to buy popcorn and soda.

I've been reading some of these stories on Fortune's website, and I must say I have been very impressed by the quality of the research and reporting that has gone into them. Some of the reports I have looked at represent many hours of background interviews with people who knew and worked with Steve Jobs. These aren't the fluff pieces that just regurgitate what others have reported before. Also, the articles mark snapshots in time of Job's career. They aren't fawning paeans, but neither are they smear campaigns: they appear to me to do a good job generally of providing even-handed coverage.

This Kindle collection of articles about Steve Jobs is an incredible resource to learn about one of the most successful and admired businessmen of our age. In addition to his biography, I feel like I understand Steve and what he accomplished so much better.

I would recommend this to any business, technology, or Apple enthusiast. Awesome collection!

I have not decided yet to read the biography of Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson. I decided to start with this book because the stories were done over the career of Steve Jobs. I think that has a special value. There were not written last minute before the news of Jobs' illness and death.
Jobs was a businessman who took high risks with companies that might end in failure. In fact Pixar was in serious financial trouble until he got the deal with Disney (Toy Story).
I recommend this book. It is excellent not only for entrepreneurs and businessmen. It is an inspiring book.

Very interesting timeline perspective of one of the men behind the ups and downs of Apple and the brain behind the iPod, iPhone, and iPad. Very objective perspective and look at the genius and imperfections of the man.

Jobs was an incredible thinker and developer of innovating and quality products. This well written brief bio gives you a good picture of the man, his genius and hid faults both of which made him the success he was. Strongly recommend you read this before his full bio.

I always thought Steve Jobs was a "bit of a tyrant" - this book just proves it.
To make Apple and Pixar the successful companies they are required
somebody "different" - Steve Jobs is certainly that.
You get to know him quite well through this book and yet he makes you
feel uncomfortable about corporate life.
His background and performance is very different from the "norm" but it
worked so well. Sadly he had to be like that to succeed. Tough on the family.
A book you won't forget.

This attempt to capitalise on the name of Steve Jobs serves only to confirm that the authorised biography is the best option if you want to know Steve Jobs.

If nothing else he would have hated it for the simple fact its only inspiration seems to be to make a buck rather than serve a legitimate purpose.

You wont learn anything from this Dross.
