Steve's book

Steve Job's official biography (iSteve, The Book Of Jobs, I kid you not) was completed back in March. So when is it coming out? 2012 is when. Huh?
I never got that aspect of traditional publishing. Since when has mega-slowness been good business for anybody?
But it's written by Walter Isaacson who is said to be really good biographist, so I'm definitely getting it.

The Book Of Jobs

It's about his climb to the top and all the hand jobs and blow jobs and rim jobs he had to do to get where he is today.

I admire your guts in signing your name to yours, Michael. Pretty ballsy.

As opposed to Jobs or Bill Gates some biographies I thought interesting: Jenny Lind, Einstein, the 'real' Alice of Alice in Wonderland and now reading the life's of Mozart and Chaucer.

I've become fascinated by the lives of exceptionally talented people but somehow the talent for making money is boring to me.

But to each his own, eh?

If you think that's the only talents they have, you're a moron. But then I suspected that - your list is of people you think will impress.

Eolake is just going to be cumming all over himself reading this thing.
