So I don't read a ton of biographies or non-fiction, but I dabble on occasion. I had this book for about five years and felt like I should read it but always thought it looks so fat and that I would be bored so I never started it. . Well, I had to read it for the podcast, so I finally jumped in and I'm so glad I did. This book is long, but I found it to be riveting. The writing is engaging, and I was so captivated by the different stories from his life that I couldn't stop. I never thought a biography could be such a page turner. I also loved reading about the stuff that neither of the movies about his life has tackled: the iPod/iPhone development and his role at Pixar. . With two movies about Jobs, I thought this subject would be fully covered but now I would love nothing more than an 8-hour HBO miniseries that covers some of the details in here. If you're at all interested in Jobs, or technology, or innovation, or charismatic personalities, this is a must read. Not to mention profound as Jobs tried to cope with his approaching death. Highly recommend this one.

Muchas de las innovaciones tecnológicas que hoy damos por hecho como la computadora personal con interfaz gráfica y los smart-phones con pantallas de vidrio se las debemos a Steve Jobs. Desde su obsesión por crear productos fantásticos fundó Apple y Pixar y aunque el cáncer de páncreas lo venció, nos dejó un legado que no podemos negar.
