Today, October 24th, 2011, Steve Job's first and only "authorized" biography comes out. Originally slated for a 2012 release date, it's printing was fast forwarded and from what I gather reading some of the early reviews, it's quite an eye opener.
Within it, Walter Issacson manages to create a list of influential books that helped shape the legend. Here's that list. No fluff, no reading in between the lines, just a list. I've included Amazon links for you just incase you want to be like Steve and shape your mind. I'll have a review of Steve Jobs by Walter Issacson as soon as I finish this week! I can't hardly wait! Now to add these books to my personal library.
