In Steve Jobs: The Exclusive Biography, Isaacson provides an extraordinary account of Jobs' professional and personal life. Drawn from three years of exclusive and unprecedented interviews Isaacson has conducted with Jobs as well as extensive interviews with Jobs' family members and key colleagues from Apple and its competitors, Steve Jobs: The Exclusive Biography is the definitive portrait of the greatest innovator of his generation.
Walter Isaacson tells the story of a incredibly polarising man, incredibly well. If you've never read a biography, start with this. This is one of the few books that have made me cry. Also one of the few books (amongst Harry Potter), that I wish I could erase my memory and read it all over again. It's hard to summarise a biography without sounding like a Wikipedia article so I will throw in an extra quote:
"Did Alexander Graham Bell do any market research before he invented the telephone?"
"Dr. Dre proclaimed, 'Man, somebody finally got it right.'"
