I have enormous respect for Malcolm Gladwell and having not read Isaacson’s biography, I will prevent myself from drawing hasty conclusions regarding his book review that was published in The New Yorker this morning.
I suppose [Steve] authorized the content of his biography yet, why is the media focussing on his shortcomings? Have we already forgotten his drive to perfection and delivering flawless products over and over again? Wether he was a tweaker is besides the point.He saw opportunities, turned them into ideas and the rest is history. Having read the entirety of this review, I was struck by the constant bashing of a man that is no longer here to respond. I’m hoping that the book conveys a more positive note.
For a nuanced analysis of the Man’s biography see Fox News “He was an innovator…we used to promote success and if they [Entrepreneurs] put in hard work they could benefit from whatever they made..”.
