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.--Jacket.

Gosh, Steve Jobs was kind of a jerk. I think this biography does a good job of presenting a balanced perspective on his life. That said I found the psychological explanations a little pat. (Along the lines of "Jobs did things this way because he was adopted.") Teens are smart and can handle subtly! For real.
