CNN has done a great job putting together a summary of the book outlining Steve Jobs‘ life.  To quote from the article:

“Steve Jobs,’ the biography of the late tech visionary that went on sale Monday, has already produced plenty of headlines: How Jobs met his birth father without knowing who he was, how he swore bitter revenge on Google for developing its competing Android system, and how he waited too long after his cancer diagnosis to get surgery that might have saved him.

“But the 656-page book by hand-picked biographer Walter Isaacson also contains a wealth of smaller, but no less telling, details about the brilliant but difficult Apple co-founder.

“Taken together, they build an illuminating portrait of a charismatic, complicated figure who could inspire people one minute and demean them the next. Even on their own, many of these snippets are still fascinating glimpses into an extraordinary life.

Good-bye and good luck, Steve.  Steve Jobs resigned this week as Apple’s President and is looking to move to Chairman of their Board.

It would be difficult to overstate the significance of Steve Jobs to Apple, and harder still to overstate Apple’s influence on the tech sector. Jobs was the towering figure behind a towering company.

So says Steve Wozniak, the man who founded Apple with Jobs. Wozniak waxed poetic about Jobs in an interview with Bloomberg. He spoke at length about Jobs’ leadership, the culture he created at Apple and the future of the company.

“He’s always going to be remembered, at least for the next hundred years, as the greatest technology business leader of our time,” Woz said of Jobs.

Steve Jobs named Tim Cook as his successor, and he has already has stepped up.  Cook said working with Jobs and Apple has been “the privilege of a lifetime” and he’s looking forward to the years ahead.
There are many books written about Job’s rise, fall and ultimate ascension to build the most innovative computer company in modern times.  Good luck Steve.  Thanks for giving us such as great industry leader.
