Steve Jobs - by Walter Isaacson
I’m normally not one to write book reviews. If it’s not directly related to design or code, I usually dont bother posting about it. I suppose I can make an exception just this once.
I just finished reading the biography on the life and career of Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson. It was brilliant. All I can really say is “Wow”. I’ve got a newfound appreciation for who he was as a person, his genius and his accomplishments.
I saw a lot about his personality to disagree with, but I found that I resonated with his tastes and character far more than I expected, and I picked up a bunch of valuable takeaways from his experience. If you build or create anything in your career, whatever that may be, and you actually care about what you’re creating, you really ought to read this book.
