Steve Jobs Steve Jobs / Walter Isaacson
I was curious about the background that shaped America's modern Svengali of slick technology, but admittedly it's surprising to learn that Jobs initially went down a vegan, Zen-like spiritual path in the 1970s. Readers also get a glimpse of Jobs' somewhat tumultuous personal life as well amidst the Jobs as the driving force, obsessive, always insisting on clean design lines and user-friendly interfaces with all of Apple's devices. Prior to this book, Isaacson had only written biographies about deceased individuals, but he wrote this book upon Jobs request and release of control over its contents.
