Steve Jobs Was an “Awesomely Emotional Person”

Perhaps you’ve heard: There’s a new Steve Jobs biography out.

Author Walter Isaacson stopped by “The Daily Show” last night for what was basically a spoiler-free interview with Jon Stewart. Then again, if you’re reading this, you’ve likely hoovered up the book already, either in its entirety or via the excerpts flooding the Web.

Still, an entertaining seven minutes, touching on Jobs’s “Zen Stare,” the role of cosmic coincidence in the Apple co-founder’s story, and a requisite dig at Microsoft.
