Biographer Walter Isaacson on Steve Jobs in Studio Q

Walter Isaacson was a Rhodes scholar, CEO of CNN, and managing editor of Time Magazine. He's written biographies on Benjamin Franklin, Henry Kissinger & Albert Einstein. His most famous work however, is Steve Jobs' biography. Researched and written before the Apple founder's death, it chronicles the life of the tech-guru highlighting the two sides of the man that were seemingly at odds with each other, yet allowed him to create some of the most widely used technology of the modern age.
