    "Your time is limited. . . . have the courage to follow your heart and intuition."--Steve Jobs

    From the start, his path was never predictable. Steve Jobs was given up for adoption at birth, dropped out of college after one semester, and at the age of twenty, created Apple in his parents' garage with his friend Steve Wozniack. Then came the core and hallmark of his genius--his exacting moderation for perfection, his counterculture life approach, and his level of taste and style that pushed all boundaries. A devoted husband, father, and Buddhist, he battled cancer for over a decade, became the ultimate CEO, and made the world want every product he touched.

    Critically acclaimed author Karen Blumenthal takes us to the core of this complicated and legendary man while simultaneously exploring the evolution of computers. Framed by Jobs' inspirational Stanford commencement speech and illustrated throughout with black and white photos, this is the story of the man who changed our world.

    • Good Read!

      I tutor a middle school student and this was on his reading list for the summer. He chose this book because he's generally interested in computers but ironically, not an Apple fan. I, however, am an Apple fan- owning a MacBook Pro, iPod touch, and iPhone which I (admittedly) use much more than I should. It was a great take on his life and gave me so much insight into where the ideas came from. I learned a great deal of information about Steve Jobs and am looking forward to seeing my students reaction to this book.
