Walter Isaacson

Steve Jobs
02 April 2012

Steve Jobs created Apple.  He gave the world the iPad, the Mac, and the iPhone. He was also an eccentric who was capable of bursting into tears when he didn’t get what he wanted, or of refusing to wear a hospital mask because its design offended him. In his phenomenal biography of Jobs, Walter Isaacson gives us a portrait of a genius who defined our time. Join us for an evening with a man who is himself something of a legend: former editor of Time, former head of CNN, current director of the Aspen Institute, and bestselling author.

Moderator: Tracy Metz
