Reviewers and forum posters have already detailed their thoughts on the anticipated biography of Steve Jobs released Oct. 24.
Members on the MacRumors user forum, a technology website, have posted their opinions on the book by Walter Isaacson.
Parapup: "It is a great book btw (I am reading on the Kindle - 20% done). If anyone was still undecided - definitely worth reading. Steve continues to sell :)"
MikhailT: "Nobody's perfect, and this book points it out, that even the most lovable CEO on the planet has his own demons and is a human being."
Benjy91: "I wished I hadn't bought this book now. I really respected Steve, but after seeing what he thought about the other people in the tech world and rival companies, he really seemed to be an arrogant, lying, self-loving man. I'm sorry but that's just how I feel about him now."
Reviewers have also publicly commented on Jobs' official biography.
Janet Maslin, a writer for The New York Times, noted Jobs' sad ending: "Mr. Jobs got the last laugh every time. Steve Jobs: A Biography makes it all the sadder that his last laugh is over."
Barbara Ortutay, a writer for The Huffington Post, said: "In the end, it's a rich portrait of one of the greatest minds of our generation."
Brittany Turner, an Amazon spokesperson, said: " Steve Jobs could very likely be our top-selling book of the year."
The biography reached 13 on Amazon's list of best sellers for the year through pre-orders alone. The book immediately shot to the top of Amazon's charts following Jobs' Oct. 5 passing, with sales that increased 40,000 percent.
