Paul Paetz I don't usually consider biographies entertaining and fun to read, but this one is the exception, just as Steve Jobs was. A key insight, not necessarily obvious on the surface, is how Steve bridged many worlds, from design, to Eastern mysticism, to technology, to human nature, to philosophy and more. It was his ability to connect the dots between his seemingly unrelated life experiences that allowed him to be the most successful serial disrupter of all time.

If ever there was an argument for associating with people who aren't like you (and who you may not even like) and learning about things outside your comfort zone, Steve's cross-discipline, cross-cultural and cross-knowledge domain way of life clearly illustrates the value of broad-based understanding to seeing the world with rare clarity and intuitive depth.
