Apple's CEO shares the spotlight with Marc Andreessen, Sheryl Sandberg and Anonymous
Al Gore has nothing but kind words for Steve Jobs' successor. His 200-word write-up begins:
"It is difficult to imagine a harder challenge than following the legendary Steve Jobs as CEO of Apple. Yet Tim Cook, a soft-spoken, genuinely humble and quietly intense son of an Alabama shipyard worker and a homemaker, hasn't missed a single beat."
The magazine identifies Gore as a former U.S. Vice President. It doesn't mention that he sits on Apple's (AAPL) board.
Who is Walter Isaacson, and why did Jobs choose him to tell the story of his life?
[NOTE: Simon & Schuster announced Sunday that the first authorized biography of Steve Jobs -- iSteve: The Book of Jobs by Walter Isaacson [Since renamed Steve Jobs] -- will be published in early 2012. A version of this article was posted in February 2010 before the S&S publicity machine was ready to kick into gear.]
