Steve Jobs biography


Just for the record i just want to say i REALLY don't care about Apple. (so don't expect this minireview being written from the point of view of a Apple fanboy).

This book has been a very pleasant suprise. I think the author manage to perfectly capture and describe Steve Jobs as a person (which obviously any good biography should do). I particulary liked the depiction of the 70s with the start of the IT industry and the partnership between Jobs & Wozniak (which seems like a great guy) and the description of Jobs "relation" with Bill Gates  (there's a faboulous quote in there "Bill was actually looking down on Steve because he couldn't actually program").
