Hooray for Walter Isaacson’s autobiography on Steve Jobs

It’s 11:30 on a Friday night and I just finished Isaacson’s book on Steve Jobs.  I felt compelled to blog because of how well book is written.  I’d like to thank Mr. Isaacson for the details into Mr. Job’s life.

My two biggest take-aways are; Jobs carried the emotional intelligence of a 9 year, and that he set the bar for visionary entrepreneurship.  Before reading this book, I had no clue how rude Steve Jobs would conduct himself, or how brilliant his product vision.

Isaacson details every aspect of Steve’s life; from childhood to death,the good and bad, the highs and lows.  My highest respect for Steve Jobs, was how he handled business.  He was able to grasp concepts so quickly and see the future.  I love his famous line: “Customers don’t know what they want until we tell them.”  Job’s was a unique renegade that challenged status-quo, no doubt about it.

If you’re a tech-enthusiast with a bit of a rebel streak in you, go pick up this book.  Or if you share an appreciation for fine writing and story-telling, this is the book for you.
