Default "Steve Jobs" by Walter Isaacson

Has anyone read it?

If so, what are your thoughts?

I am half way through it. My initial thought is that it is written in a very choppy manner. It is hard to follow who he is quoting at times.

On a Steve Jobs level, I knew he was difficult to work with, but this guy was a royal jerk. Can you say total narcissist?

I haven't read the book, though I did see a brief interview with the author on The Daily Show, as well as a profile on Jobs during 60 Minutes. To say that Jobs was a royal jerk is a bit of an understatement. I've known for a long time (in past interviews) that Jobs was temperamental, which made him difficult to get along / work with. As an IT professional, I recognize his contributions to technology, but I don't like nor respect him as an individual. That's all I'm going to say on the subject.
