Shelves: non-fiction, 13-15yrs
A topical biography for 11-14 year olds that is interesting and quite balanced and objective. It explores all areas of his life including dropping out of college and his business failures, his interest in Buddhism, his sometimes difficult to work with style, his creativity and inventiveness and how he has affected the way we live. Overall it is informative and bound to inspire young inventor-entrepreneurs.

Shelves: high-school
In depth description of the life of Steve Jobs up until his death in 2011. Topics discussed included his early life, how he became interested in electronics, how he started Apple and developed his empire, and his death. The book is a good account of his life and would be excellent for a biography project.
