Gosh, Steve Jobs was kind of a jerk. I think this biography does a good job of presenting a balanced perspective on his life. That said I found the psychological explanations a little pat. (Along the lines of "Jobs did things this way because he was adopted.") Teens are smart and can handle subtly! For real.
