Isaacson has written an amazing book. That we today take computers for granted is due in large part to the vision of Steve Jobs. The story of how that vision was realized is fascinating in itself, as is the man behind the vision. Jobs was a complex man, and not always a very nice person. For all his flaws, he was able to identify talent and elicit heroic efforts from them. Like many driven people, Jobs could use people and then quite simply cast them aside. And there were lots who couldn't stand up to the pace and pressure of working in the environment Jobs created. But among those who could stand the demanding circumstances of working with him, Jobs inspired a kind of loyalty -- not necessarily to himself but to his vision. One of the best biographies I have read.
