I've known a little bit about Steve Jobs, but after reading this book (which my wife gave me as a gift), I'm surprised to find out just how driven and volatile the man was. Although he was a visionary, and managed to push some fantastic ideas into being, I have to say that I'm thoroughly and unpleasantly amazed at just how horrible he could be towards others. I have very strong mixed feelings after reading this book. There are some things about him that absolutely inspired me, and other things that are very much an example of how I do NOT want to be. It is definitely a powerful and moving book, and highly recommend reading it.
