did not like it

** spoiler alert ** Very Disappointed as I really enjoyed 2 other books that Isaacson wrote on Einstein and Franklin but he got to close to his subject in this book and lost all perception. Jobs actually called Isaacson to write his biography and you can feel the hero worship in his writing. Isaacson says Jobs is like Henry Ford or Thomas Edison.
Job was difficult( that gives new meaning to the word difficult ) as he had an daughter out of wedlock and the mother had to sue him to get child support, he gives all his creative thinking credited to taking many LSD trips, he cries in public when he doesn't get his way and Bill Gates, Microsoft chairman said, " jobs knows nothing about technology-he is just a super salesman."

Alexw Have not read any other book on Jobs but would appreciate your recommendations for further reading.

Alexw Many thanks and would you do me the honor of being my Goodreads friend? We seem to enjoy the same type of novels and am intrigued on other books we like.
