Steve Jobs, the abridged version

Steve Jobs, the abridged version

Posted on November 7th, 2011 by admin

The book “Steve Jobs”, by Walter Isaacson now in print, all 656 pages and 2.2 pounds of it.

Being a fan of Cliff Notes WAY back when I was in High School, I was pleased to find a quick summary by Malcolm Gladwell at “The New Yorker” magazine.

Just the few short anecdotal excerpts provide further understanding of Steve Jobs and the myriad of ideas and refinements he was constantly chasing in every aspect of his personal and professional life.

 

Someday I may read the book but for now here is a quick read that imparts the flavor and some choice Jobs anecdotes.
