CNN published an interesting story on Steve Jobs on Sunday The trouble with Steve Jobs. It reveals that Apple’s Chairman and CEO nearly didn’t have surgery for his pancreatic cancer in 2004, other family problems, and looks at his leadership style.
The Steve Jobs adventure: By now it’s one of the most remarkable stories in business. When Jobs returned in 1997 to Apple – then facing its own near-death experience – he arrived with a tarnished legend. He was, of course, the charismatic boy wonder who at age 21 had co-founded Apple with Steve Wozniak in his parents’ garage back in 1976. He was worth $200 million by 25, made the cover of Time magazine at 26, and was thrown out of the company at age 30, in 1985.
