‘Becoming Steve Jobs’ poised to top New York Times Best Seller list

Becoming Steve Jobs: The Evolution of a Reckless Upstart Into a Visionary Leader is poised to become the best-selling hardcover non-fiction book on the New York Times Best Seller list — just two-and-a-half weeks after its March 24 publication by Random House,” Therese Poletti reports for MarketWatch.

“The authors are veteran journalists: Brent Schlender covered Apple for many years at both The Wall Street Journal and Fortune, and Rick Tetzeli, a former Fortune editor, is now an executive editor at Fast Company magazine,” Poletti reports. “Earlier this week the two authors held a conversation on stage at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, Calif. with moderator John Hollar, CEO of the museum.”

  1. Now that I’ve read it through, I definitely recommend it. It does not go easy on Jobs as so many negative reviews have stated. It does examine what went on at Next and Pixar, and goes deeper than previous books into more aspects of his character. Must read for Apple and Steve Jobs fans regardless of what else you have already read.

  2. I read in 4 days, and closed the book with sadness; for what was, and might have been, had Jobs lived longer. Very insightful on many levels, and a broader view of the computer and tech industry Jobs navigated. Best of all was the view of a man who learned and grew as a leader, even if refining some negative characteristics, as we all do.
