    went out to B and N tonight and picked up this book. for those of you who dont know what it is. it is about good 'ole Stevie Jobs and his success with apple. its almost 400 pages long and should provide some good reading. maybe it will be quite informative as well

    only gripe is that it was 25 bones

    has anyone else read this yet?

    There was another thread about this a couple weeks ago.

    I just got my copy in from Amazon today. I've read around 100 or so pages and I really like it so far.

    It is a very good book.

    I can't vouch for it's accurateness, but tempered by what Wozniak has publicly stated about Steve, it seems like the book makes a pretty good assessment of Steve's good and bad sides.

    It also gets pretty deep into his personal life, including the problems with his "illegitimate" daughter and her mother, along with his marriage to Laurene and their children and family life.

    Almost done - a very good read. And believe me, I have to read all day long, it takes a lot to get me to pick up a book and finish it.

    Glad to have it on my bookshelf.
