Apple is Still Engineering the Legacy of Steve Jobs

Brent Schlender didn't set out to write a Steve Jobs biography that Apple would love, but it happened anyway. On Tuesday, Schlender and co-author Rick Tetzeli published a new biography, Becoming Steve Jobs, that is widely viewed as a counterpoint to Walter Isaacson's bestselling authorized biography, published three weeks after Jobs' death, which portrayed Jobs as brilliant but temperamental. Isaacson's book was filled with evidence of Jobs' famous character flaws — the fierce temper, the capacity for contradictions and self-deception."I'd seen so much more, so many more sides of Steve," says Schlender, who covered the late Apple CEO for The Wall Street Journal and Fortune for 25 years.
