Everybody knows who Steve jobs was; the deceased CEO of Apple and the creator of many apple products. To commemorate Jobs' astounding legacy, Walter Isaacson wrote a biography on Steve.
One element the reader might find interest in is the sense of empathy it creates.
For example, on page 34, it says "Steve talked to me a lot about being abandoned and the pain that caused,” he said. “It made him independent."
Another element the reader can find interest in is how it helps the reader understand that there are things that are out of a person's control. For example on page 44 it says, “Look, it’s not his fault,” Paul Jobs told the teachers, his son recalled. “If you can’t keep him interested, it’s your fault.”
Another element the reader might enjoy is how it creates the sense to do great in school.
For example, on page 45, it says "Near the end of fourth grade, Mrs. Hill had Jobs tested. 'I scored at the high school sophomore level,' he recalled."
In conclusion, Steve Jobs is a great biography and is worth reading.
