This is Lisa Brennan-Jobs story of her life as the daughter of Steve Jobs and Chrisann Brennan. Yes, Steve Jobs comes off as a real jerk, as well as her mother. I think he has a reputation of being that way. By Lisa's descriptions, Jobs demonstrated a lot of neurotic behaviors. Her dad left her a multi-millionaire and now she will make more money writing this book about him. I guess by some peoples standards he made up for all his failings as her father. I ended up liking Lisa. I thought she was very humble in telling about her life as his daughter and what a juggling act it was. I also don't dislike Steve Jobs. He is of a different world than I could ever imagine. There were some things that really surprised or bewildered me about him. One was that he had very little formal education. Who would have thought. Also, how did a father with his income not have to pay an exorbitant amount in child support? That didn't make sense to me. She writes in her memoir that by the time she was seven, her mother and she had changed several houses. This, despite her father, being a millionaire. I gave this a four star rating. I found it really intriguing. This kind of memoir is my favorite. I likened this to Tara Westover's "Educated". If you're into memoirs, I'd definitely recommend this one.
