A customer looks at the book "Steve Jobs," by Walter Isaacson at a Costco store in Mountain View, Calif., Wednesday, Oct. 26, 2011. Jobs told Isaacson he wanted him to write his biography because he's good at getting people to talk. Jobs, it turns out, didn't need much prodding, secretive as he was about both his private life and the company he founded. "I just listened," said Isaacson, whose book, "Steve Jobs" went on sale Monday, Oct. 24, 2011. Jobs, who died Oct. 5 at the age of 56 after a long struggle with pancreatic cancer, was a man full of deep contradictions, a product of 1960s counterculture who went on to found what is now the world's most valuable technology company, Apple Inc.
