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?

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.
