Steve Jobs: The Man Who Thought Different

Young Adult Non-Fiction

G/A  Blumenthal, Karen.  Steve Jobs: The Man Who Thought Different.  Feiwel, 2012.  310p.  978-1-250-01557-0.  16.99.

This Steve Jobs biography is a great resource for both teens and adults who are not quite ready (or willing) to tackle the 630page Walter Isaacson biography. It clearly doesn’t go into as much detail, but still gives the reader plenty of information about Jobs’ personal life and career. This biography specifically written for teens is much better quality than the majority of teen biography series available, both in the writing style and its’ high interest topic. It includes photos, a timeline, glossary, index and extended bibliography. Loren Spector, LAPL, Felipe de Neve
