I got this book on the day it was published, which was just after Steve Jobs died. At first, I was taken by how odd this man was, and how brilliant. He seemed to go out of his way to hurt others, but the deeper I got into the book, the more I realized that it was his way of loving, which is strange to say the least. His sister, Mona Simpson, eulogized him here, and this is very worth reading, especially if you plan to read the book. This man changed our lives by being uncompromising. It's a terrific business book and a fine chronicle of our times. Highly recommended.
