After more than a month, I finally finished reading another book. Yes, it called “Steve Jobs”, an authorized biography of the man himself by Walter Isaacson.
Despite of the length of time I need, I actually glad I get to read it.
It’s really nice to be able to get to know Steve Jobs from different sides other than just someone who found Apple Inc.
The book lets me know that he was just a human being, the one with problems and imperfections, even mistakes that cause some pain in his and other people’s life. He didn’t have the best attitude or personality. He didn’t always make best choices either. But even then, he was still an amazing man whose passion and enthusiasm creates a great contribution and legacy to mankind.
Jobs was someone who loves art and technology and know exactly how to combine those two aspects in everything that he created. His ability to focus, his vision, and his attention to details brought him further ahead. He was a genius and his so called reality distortion field, even though in some cases evoke problems, was helping him and his company (Apple and Pixar) to reach most of the impossible.
I read the Indonesian version of the book. I have to say that I don’t enjoy some of the translation. But most of all it’s still a good book. Isaacson manage to cover most part of Jobs live, from his personal journey to his life as a great innovator. What an inspiration. What a lost.
One small-maybe-not-significant thing, how come I don’t found the date Jobs passed away? Well, here goes.. RIP Steven Paul Jobs, February 24, 1955 – October 5, 2011.
