really liked it

Short review: It really was a good book. Could have used some editing in the last quarter of the book. (Did not need a section on the iPhone 4 antena problems or iCloud). But Jobs is a compelling figure and Isaacson had a lot of access. Which leads me to think that there really needs to be a bit more distance from Jobs for a definitive biography. It was almost as much about Apple as it was about Jobs, so some might not be thrilled about that if they are not interested in the growth of the company.

There were very interesting thoughts on what it means (and what it takes) to be great.
