    Hey,

    I am very interested in Steve Jobs and Apple and I have placed an order on Amazon for the following books:

    1. Icon Steve Jobs: The Greatest Second Act in the History of Business
    2. The Second Coming of Steve Jobs

    Has anyone read these books? If so, what did you think of them? Would you recommend different titles?

    I think Steve is a very interesting person, who I think we could learn a great deal from. He seems to have a knack for prospering companies!

    Thank you for your help - it is appreciated.

    Don't forget the early part of the Apple story, too -- perhaps best told in The Little Kingdom, a 1984 book by Michael Moritz.

    i havent read all of iCon, but Second Coming is a great book - if you liked it, you might also want to check out other Jobs-related books it mentions in there, like the semi-biographical novel written by his younger biological sister Mona Simpson - it's called A Regular Guy, and it's sort of interesting.
