Philip Elmer-DeWitt, Fortune, makes an interesting observation:
I was halfway through Becoming Steve Jobs — the new book by Brent Schlender and Rick Tetzeli — when it occurred to me that Aaron Sorkin had a problem...
He’s currently working on, among other things, a big-budget movie about Steve Jobs based on Walter Isaacson’s bestselling biography.
And that’s the problem. With the script written and principal photography begun (actors on the set, cameras rolling) Schlender and Tetzeli have come out with a book that says Isaacson’s portrayal of Jobs was off — a myth, a stereotype based on 30-year-old anecdotes.
Let's hope that Aaron did his homework by looking well beyond Walter Isaacson’s book. Or, as Philip points out, perhaps there's still time for some modifications.
I'm not interested in seeing - or reading - anymore accounts that too heavily paint Steve as a jerk. That's a shallow, over-simplistic, and inaccurate view of who Steve was.
