Steve Jobs

Category : Commentary/SteveJobs.txt

I've finished reading "Steve Job". I took my time over it cos I didn't want to come to the end - that had felt sadly like literally closing the book on Jobs. 

About half-way thru, I realized I could write this book myself. I've read all the books on Jobs and Apple over the years. Except for Jeff Young's The Journey is the Reward, most, like Jim Carlton's & Mike Malone's were "hatchet jobs". 

So, this biography, while being thankfully sympathetic, mostly rehashed the things we already know & thereby disappoints. I kept thinking, you idiot, you get to ask Steve Jobs questions? Jobs, for one, would know the loneliness of the contrarian thinker. You can plumb the depths of his soul. 

That's the tragedy - the wasted opportunity. We know it won't come again.
