This is a very well written biography of a remarkable, not always likeable man who changed the face of modern technology. I think the author does a great job of trying to honestly represent Jobs, flaws and all, and manages to end up with a detailed and reasonably unbiased portrait that allows the reader to draw their own conclusions about the man. Those who are already very familiar with Apple's and Steve Jobs' history may find parts of it are no surprise, and those looking for in depth technology analysis will be disappointed, but as a personal portrait of this unique man and his accomplishments this is well worth reading. I particularly found that the recounting of the continuing relationship between Jobs and Bill Gates was fascinating. Highly recommended.
