Apple co-founder Steve Jobs lived quite a life, building and influencing the world in ways some can only imagine.

In the years leading up to his untimely death, Jobs granted writer/biographer Walter Isaacson unique access to his life for a sanctioned biography about his life.

Nothing death was approaching, the Apple innovator enlisted Isaacson so that he left behind an accurate and honest portrayal, offering details about his abandonment as a child all the way up to his days of making Apple a household name.

In this two-part series, “60 Minutes” chronicles the process that went into the book, as well as how/why Jobs was so wildly successful, and at what cost.
