Steve Jobs Biography Reviews: 'A Rich Portrait of One of the Greatest Minds of Our Generation'

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.
