Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson

Sure, everybody and their dog has already bought this book (379,000 copies sold in the US alone during its opening week), but we really need to make a point that this a remarkably honest and thorough account. One can only give credit to the late Jobs for cooperting with this Isaacson to make this happen. The author avoids the sticker, me-too glorification of the man that has plagued the press and cocktail discussions around the world and squarely focuses on the story and Job's many virtues and vices. Dispassionate and engaging at the same time. Thumbs up!
