According to a copy of the book obtained by The Huffington Post, Jobs first asked biographer Walter Isaacson to write his story in 2004, the same year Jobs announced that he had been treated for a cancerous tumor on his pancreas. Isaacson writes that, at the time, he shrugged off the request, thinking Jobs had decades left. But when Jobs took his second medical leave from the company in 2009, Isaacson realized that time was short.
The result of Isaacson's almost two-year effort is a 571-page tome whose index alone is almost 30-pages long and covers everything from "Abbey Road" to Mark Zuckerberg.
Take a look at the slideshow (below) to read Jobs' best quotes from Jobs about his fellow tech titans.
