I haven't, but one of my clients has, and asked that I change some of his previous quotes to reflect a more "Jobs-ian" perspective (i.e., "in it for the fun of it" or "in it for the magic").

It seems well-regarded. I'm afraid I'd feel like a lazy beast.
Ha! It is very inspiring. I'm really glad I read it, though it was a long haul.

His appearance changed so much; I didn't realize how lean he'd become until I saw early pictures.

Of course, that was probably post-diagnosis.
Apparently he was a very particular eater throughout his life. When he was very ill, he needed lots of lots of protein, but his life-long vegan habits were hard to break.

I didn't know he was a vegan. That makes me like him more.

Do you think it's worth reading, despite the length? Sometimes I find that the less I know about someone who makes something I like (a writer, a painter, an architect), the freer I am to enjoy it. For example, once I read Salinger's bio, it affected my enjoyment of Catcher In the Rye.

Will it be disillusioning?
i have it. maybe i'll take it with me on my vacation as my singular read. glad to hear it was good.

Interesting question, Ninja. It could be, because he could be a total a** to his employees, and having worked for a boss like that, I was sensitive to that part of his personality.

However, my overall takeaway was positive. He was a genius, an absolute perfectionist with an amazing eye for detail, which I absolutely love and admire, so overall, I wasn't disillusioned.
