The death of Steve Jobs was not a total surprise, but it seems to have affected many of us very deeply. It’s hard to explain, but most of us were in denial and hoped for some miracle that would have prolonged his life. To die at 56 is way too early and certainly tragic. Anyway, I knew that the authorized biography of his life by Walter Isaacson would be coming out soon, and I was delighted to see that it will be available on October 24th. I’ve pre-ordered it already in hardback from Amazon.
