Walter Isaacson’s 656 page biography of Steve Jobs was released this week, and while it sounds engaging and insightful, I may wait until February when Karen Blumenthal’s biography of Jobs is published. Blumenthal’s book for young adults is 400 pages shorter and has an equally cool cover.
Blumenthal is also the author of Mr. Sam: How Sam Walton Built Walmart and Became America’s Richest Man. If you know a budding entrepeneur, these books would be inspiring gifts.
If you don’t have time to read either Isaacson’s or Blumenthal’s biographies of the 21st century icon, check out the 60 Minutes interview with Walter Isaacson. Here’s the link:
