Prescott What did you think? I just finished it.

Ashley I enjoyed reading it, but the writing was not my favorite and it made me realize I really prefer memoirs to biographies. What'd you think?

Prescott It was naff. Scrubbed very clean and sanded off for a mainstream audience. I was not impressed by the prose, and I'm still left with questions as to how Steve became such a unique person (read, asshole). There's gotta be something between the lines I'm not getting, it seems.

I would have rather read a book about the development of the iPod only, where Jobs would have been simply one of the characters in that story. This way, we'd get more honest opinions and insight into those lesser-known stories.
