Steve Jobs was a complex person. Mr. Issacson has done an admirable job of presenting a balanced portrayal that delves into the creative as well as destructive side of Steve Jobs. The narrative is smooth and engaging. Details drawn from hours of personal time with Mr. Jobs and meticulous interviews with people in his life are reflected in the richness of the text. I listened to the audio version and the narrator did justice to the long yet compelling book. The epilogue in the authors own voice just adds to the depth – highly recommended!
