really liked it
bookshelves: biography

This biography was started before his death, so it is not the rush job I originally thought that it would be coming out so soon after Jobs died. However, I feel that the detail and insight into his life is much more biased towards his early years. Time starts passing faster and faster the further you get into the book, and it starts to feel less like a look into Jobs and what made him tick, and more of an encyclopedic summary of what was going on at Apple.

It's still a very interesting read, and a good look at a very interesting man, but I just wish that another 6 months or year had passed between Jobs' death and the release of the book. Some time for reflection and less immediate impact could have made the last part of the biography as compelling as the beginning.
