An illustrated depiction of Steve Jobs' friendship with Zen Buddhist Kobun Chino Otogawa and the impact it had on Jobs' career

Apple cofounder Steve Jobs (1955-2011) had such an enormous impact on so many people that his life often took on aspects of myth. But much of his success was due to collaboration with designers, engineers and thinkers. The Zen of Steve Jobs tells the story of Jobs' relationship with one such person: Kobun Chino Otogawa.

Kobun was a Zen Buddhist priest who emigrated to the U.S. from Japan in the early 1970s. He was an innovator, lacked appreciation for rules and was passionate about art and design. Kobun was to Buddhism as Jobs was to the computer business: a renegade and maverick. It wasn't long before the two became friends--a relationship that was not built to last.

This graphic book is a reimagining of that friendship. The story moves back and forward in time, from the 1970s to 2011, but centers on the period after Jobs' exile from Apple in 1985 when he took up intensive study with Kobun. Their time together was integral to the big leaps that Apple took later on with its product design and business strategy.

Told using stripped down dialogue and bold calligraphic panels, The Zen of Steve Jobs explores how Jobs might have honed his design aesthetic via Eastern religion before choosing to identify only what he needs and leave the rest behind.

Steve was a tyrant but a genius and had he not been so motivated to accomplish as he was, he would never have created what we all take for granted; our mobility! He taught a lot of newbies how to do business and I'm sure those who worked with and for him, looking back on the experience, will agree that it was the hardest time of their lives but the best because they are where they are due to his skills!

Really love this book. One of my favourite books. Love the cartoon and different feel of the book. Real simple and easy to read with a few real learning point that worth reading again and again. Real learning experience for me and eye opener if you have interest in design, meditation, Buddhism, Steve Jobs or just in general are curious about other way of thinking and seeing the world in another perspective. Could really recommend this book if you are open minded to new things and don't want boring fact driven books. This is alternative book I really enjoyed it.

If you are an Apple fan or you just want a good graphic novel to read this is perfect. The storyline is awesome and gives you a little more insight on Steve's relationship with his monk friend and some insight on Steve's journey to buddism.

I read it in less than 10 mins. And it cost me 10 dolors for kindle edition....

Story and drawing is all right but not a collectible quality that I'm willing to pay more than 10 dolors.

Totally not worth the money.

Interesting, fresh and innovative approach, yet very short booklet -- rather than reading it, you'll browse through it - and finish it within 10 minutes or so -- still remembering initial price.

Content is OK, but definitely not enough for 10 bucks. If it wouldn't be so nicely done, I'd call it a rip-off.

The book reminds me of the comics I read as a child. It is also in the format of the Forbes Africa magazine which incorporates a flap that can be used as a book mark.

About the content:
"The search for perfection is all very well;
but to look for heaven is to live here in hell." - The Police.
Simple, yet deep. Two people on human journey, who came closer than most to the understanding of spiritual and material refinement, or at least the process of it.
