I like reading books, holding them in my hands and putting them on the shelf after reading them. Books on paper are familiar and when ordered over the net they arrive in the mail just a few days later. Why change something that works?
But Steve Jobs official biography is a book I wanted as soon as possible. It’s a story about an earlier revolution that changed the world, and the man in the center of that revolution. Without a doubt there are similarities to what’s happening today, and lessons we can learn from them. Since I’ve read the authors biographies over Benjamin Franklin and Albert Einstein (two other fascinating men) I knew I’d love this one.
I pre-ordered the e-book from Apple’s iBookstore. It’s my first e-book (I’m a bit late). When the book was released yesterday it automatically appeared in my iPad. It’s a fitting way to read it. And not surprisingly it feels like the future. Again.
