Steve Jobs – The Official Biography

Steve Jobs, the official biography, hits stores tomorrow. Jobs is profiled by 60 minutes tonight. The book sounds interesting — in no way a hagiography. Jobs was a demanding, abrasive, and sometimes petulant, perfectionist. He fathered a child out of wedlock, and at first denied paternity. Jobs could be cold and aloof.

Isaacson is the author of other seminal biographies, including Einstein: His Life and Universe, Benjamin Franklin: An American Life, and Kissinger: A Biography.

For an excellent, Christian perspective on Steve Jobs’ resignation and death, see this post by Michael Horton.

Fair warning: I’ve since read the entire book. It’s very well written, but has lots of profanity. Not something you can listen to in the car with your kids. Jobs was an intense, creative genius, but he often had a potty mouth.
