4.0 out of 5 stars I was interested in learning more about Steve Jobs..., 4 May 2001
This review is from: The Second Coming of Steve Jobs (Hardcover)
I am a keen Macintosh user, and believe that the computer I have on my desk is the best there is. My interest in the personalities behind Apple came from watching the Movie "Pirates of Silicon Valley", which led me to read the book "Fire in the Valley", on which the movie was based. I then read "Apple Confidential", an account of the history of Apple Computer, Inc. The Second Coming of Steve Jobs does as much as any book could do to help one understand a very complex and contradictory man. He is an innovator and a genius, but he is also infantile and selfish. I don't know if I would like to work with him, but I love the products he turns out.
Overall, this is a fascinating account on the life of Mr Jobs between leaving Apple in 1985 and his victorious, and controvertial return, in 1996. You learn much about his relationships with employees, his NeXT and Pixar intrests and their sucesses and infamous failures. Bill Gates even gets a look in, leaving unsulting messages on Steve's answering machine, slagging-off his Macintosh.
