This a new take on Steve jobs' life story, and is very engaging to advanced and reluctant readers alike. The hand written text is easy to read, and is accessible to younger readers. The lack of color may be difficult for elementary and some middle school students to maintain interest.

This is an excellent biography to feature in the library according to the theme of success stories. This theme may be in play the weeks before high school graduation. This could also be a text used in coordination with a biography study in an English or 20th century American history class.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0307982955, Hardcover)

This fast-paced and entertaining biography in graphic format is a perfect complement to more text-heavy books on Steve Jobs like Walter Isaacson’s biography. Presenting the story of the ultimate American entrepreneur, who brought us Apple Computer, Pixar, Macs, iPods, iPhones and more, this unique and stylish book is sure to appeal to the legions of readers who live and breathe the techno-centric world Jobs created.
Jobs’s remarkable life reads like a history of the personal technology industry. He started Apple Computer in his parents’ garage and eventually became the tastemaker of a generation, creating products we can’t live without. Through it all, he was an overbearing and demanding perfectionist, both impossible and inspiring.
Capturing his unparalleled brilliance, as well as his many demons, Jessie Hartland’s engaging biography illuminates the meteoric successes, devastating setbacks, and myriad contradictions that make up the extraordinary life and legacy of the insanely great Steve Jobs.
