Walter Isaacson................

Faithful readers might have recognized that I have been reading Walter Isaacson's biography of Steve Jobs.   It is a well written book.  I highly recommend it to you.  Took me longer than I wanted; kind of bogged down in the middle, as Jobs's personality wore me out.  Can't fathom what it must have felt like to work with him up-close and personal, day in and day out.  In his own defense, Jobs would say that he spoke the truth, even when it was unpleasant.  Jobs asked Isaacson to write his biography and gave him access to everything and everybody, asking only that he write the unvarnished truth; warts, blemishes, and all.  Mission accomplished.  It is well worth reading.
