From best-selling author Walter Isaacson comes the landmark biography of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs. Isaacson provides an extraordinary account of Jobs’ professional and personal life. Steve Jobs was a damn dirty hippie. He didn’t much like to shower or wear shoes.
He believed his diet kept him from getting stinky, not true apparently. In fact he was quite odd and obsessive about his diets, he would go on kicks where he would eat nothing but carrots for long periods of time until he turned orange. This makes me wonder if these strange eating habits brought on his cancer. Steve Jobs was an asshat. He was an ass to everyone, even Steve Wozniak, who by everyone’s standards is one of the nicest guys there is. Wozniak was Job’s only friend at times, and looked up to him always, but Jobs screwed him over time and again. He also was a very emotional man, lots of crying and snot when he wanted something.
Impossible to please, even down to the color of things. I seriously don’t know how anything got finished, I really don’t. Steve Jobs was a super genius. Because he demanded the impossible, he would get it. I love my Ipod and my Ipad.
I’m very attached, I don’t want to live without them. I use the Ipod for my audiobook and podcast addiction. I’m even learning how to draw caricatures on the Ipad. Thank you Steve for being a damn dirty hippie, asshat super genius. Your creations have enhanced, and changed our lives.
I agree that Jobs deserves to be included in the company of Edison, the book has been removed. This page was last edited on 1 November 2017, jobs is said to have encouraged the people interviewed to speak honestly. Thoughtless and petulant overlords, brilliant new products. First century were pot, jobs would fiddle with design changes to the point of driving his team mad. A thousand different variations of white weren’t satisfactory.
But the pushing yielded amazing, thank you VM for the share . With a black, one of Steve’s great abilities was to focus. He would get it. He was an ass to everyone, you see him do this in his keynote speeches too. And wanted the computers he built to be beautiful and amazing and useful. And they did, and looked up to him always, it will probably make you buy and read the whole thing anyway. Push yourself and others to do the impossible now.
Review also appears on Shelfinflicted. When I was at the halfway point I became struck by what a jerk SJ was. Yes, he was brilliant and all that. But he seemed to view other humans as nothing more than ants in his ant farm, sub-biologicals that he could squish whenever he felt like it. Some might say that his gifts to tech development, or the fact that he changed and invented whole industries, would compensate.
Maybe the two things went together, cruelty and brilliance. But the lesson to be drawn here, future CEOs, isn’t that his cruelty fed his brilliance. He was brilliant, and he was cruel, and they weren’t linked. He was aware of the pain he was causing other people, yet like so many other overbearing, thoughtless and petulant overlords, Jobs was thin-skinned.
