In light of his very private life, the upcoming biography of Steve Jobs may seem out of character for the man who built Apple.
However, his biographer says that Steve Jobs agreed to a tell-all biography in order for his kids to know more about their busy father.
Walter Isaacson, the author of “Steve Jobs: A Biography”, has revealed in an essay on Time.com what the enigmatic Apple CEO told him in an interview just weeks before his death.
According to the Pulitzer-nominated writer, Jobs said in their final interview that “I wanted my kids to know me.”
“I wasn’t always there for them, and I wanted them to know why and to understand what I did,” Jobs reportedly added.
According to Isaacson, Steve Jobs was week during their last interview. He was staying at a downstairs bedroom in his Palo Alto, California home because he was too weak to climb and go down stairs, the writer says.
However, “his mind was still sharp and his humor vibrant,” the writer says about Steve Jobs during their final interview.
