This deep dive into the life and mind of Steve Jobs is enthralling, a great read all the way to the last page. Using biographical narrative as a framework, Isaacson provides insights into the creation of groundbreaking tech devices such as the iPhone. I recommend this work for anyone interested in understanding how innovation happens, and for tech investors wondering where the Next Big Thing might unfold. This book shines light on how a technological genius willed his ideas into reality.
