Anyone else here planning to read the Steve Jobs biography this week? If so, post your thoughts after reading or anything else you want about the book. I'm heading down to B&N to pick up a copy in the morning. Yes the actual book and not an ebook. Shocked

Plan to pick up a copy next time I'm at Costco, probably won't have time to read it until Thanksgiving though.

Anxiously waiting for Amazon to ship mine. But probably wont have time to read much for a while with all the other reading I have to do for school. Unfortunately, I can't find a way to work that book into a project for one of my classes...at least not this semester.

I finished the book over the weekend. I actually found it to be quite depressing focusing mostly on narcissism. Then in the end, it reads like a timeline of products without much insight. Perhaps even rushed.
