Steve Jobs: Insanely Great by Jessie Hartland - ESSENTIAL

Hartland, Jessie  Steve Jobs: Insanely Great, 216 pgs.  Schwartz Wade Books, 2015 (Random House).  $22.95  GRAPHIC NOVEL Content: Language: PG; Violence: G; Mature Content: PG.   

Steve Jobs grew up in a home where he could tinker and invent his own projects.  As he grew up he didn’t love college and decided that he could make a personal computer that would be easy for the general population to use.  His creative mind and striving for perfection led him to inventing the iPod and iPhone.  He revolutionized technology.   

This graphic novel is a creative and succinct biography of Steve Jobs.  The book concentrates on his work with technology and not a lot of feelings and personal observations, but I feel like that made it unbiased.  The pictures are in black and white and have a lot of details about the technology, but it’s explained in a simplified way.  The content is PG because there are three times when he uses expletives (#@!) and it eludes to his drug use after high school.   

MS, HS-ESSENTIAL.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
