This was a fun little book, and an interesting approach. It is peppered with clips and samples of e-mail exchanges, though not nearly as many as the title led me to believe. It gives a decent, if thin, account of the career of Steve Jobs, especially during his second time around with Apple Inc., and it does this with the e-mail correspondence at the center.

I wouldn’t highly recommend this book, and it’s probably not anything close to the quality of biography on Jobs as the others that have come
Many of Mr. Jobs' communications were simply "Yep," "Nope," or some form of "It's coming soon." At times, he would pontificate on the merits of some particular philosophy, other times he would lambast the original writer for being critical, judgmental, or stupid. He also sent out a fair number of emails that were purposefully misleading about products and timelines, and he sent these to journalists as well as the general public.

The author admits that he has no way of knowing for certain how many
It felt like a slapped together account of emails rather than adding insight to emails and letting the correspondences speak for themselves. Immature writing.

Expected a lot more than a summary of Steve Jobs' life intespersed with some fanmail.
Short, quick to read, not a must read for the Apple fans, but better than expected.
Meh, rehashed info from other books/sites/etc. Not really worth it.
