Tons of unread hardcopies for $2 at local Goodwill's. True SD'ers don't buy books new from Amazon.

I did, and I regretted it.

This book has some major factual errors, and the tone of the book shows that Isaacson did not really understand the point or philosophy behind much of what Jobs told him.

This book was not 'approved' by Jobs and it shows. It is not 'the story of Jobs', but more of 'what Isaacson thinks of Jobs'.

I wish someone with a better understanding of the industry, and more sympathy for Jobs' design/quality philosophy, would write a book about him.
