I like this brief exchange, Steve Wozniak visiting Steve Jobs at Reed College:
[Jobs] liked being at Reed, just not taking the required classes. In fact he was surprised when he found out that, for all of its hippie aura, there were strict course requirements. When Wozniak came to visit, Jobs waved his schedule at him and complained, “They are making me take all these courses.” Woz replied, “Yes, that’s what they do in college.”I’ve only been able to take a few quick glances at this book. The index does not inspire confidence: Jonathan “Jony” Ive is identified therein as “Sony” Ive (page 612). There’s also an entry for Jobs’s “topography [read typography] obsession” (page 614). Imagine Jobs’s reaction to such errors.
