Notes and Reflections on Books and Media

by Hannah Leitheiser


Steve Jobs

Walter Issaacson


Steve Jobs was a little nuts. He was obnoxious, clung to theories such as the idea that eating a diet of fruit would prevent harmful mucus and body odor (his coworkers apparently had a different opinion of how well it worked), he could be cruel, he had strange body language, and often offended friends and business contacts.

And while his story is one of amazing success because by some grace he was able to charm some key people, I can't help but wonder how many with similar personality traits end up homeless or worse.
