The Bite in the Apple Chrisann Brennan read online review & book description:

An intimate look at the life of Steve Jobs by the mother of his first child providing rare insight into Jobs's formative, lesser-known years

Steve Jobs was a remarkable man who wanted to unify the world through technology. For him, the point was to set people free with tools to explore their own unique creativity. Chrisann Brennan knows this better than anyone. She met him in high school, at a time when Jobs was passionately aware that there was something much bigger to be had out of life, and that new kinds of revelations were within reach.

The Bite in the Apple is the very human tale of Jobs's ascent and the toll it took, told from the author's unique perspective as his first girlfriend, co-parent, friend, and—like many others—object of his cruelty. Brennan writes with depth and breadth, and she doesn't buy into all the hype. She talks with passion about an idealistic young man who was driven to change the world, about a young father who denied his own child, and about a man who mistook power for love. Chrisann Brennan's intimate memoir provides the reader with a human dimension to Jobs' myth. Finally, a book that reveals a more real Steve Jobs.

  • Poor Steve....

    Seems so easy to publish a book demonizing someone who is dead and has no voice. This book is somewhat engaging, mostly because it gives some insight to the 1970’s California scene, which Is depressing. Ms. Brennan contradicts herself from one sentence to the next. Does she like this person or not? Why does she seem to stay - for YEARS - around people she does not like and in situations that she questions? And to keep her baby for how long before she decides to permanently keep her? That’s just strange and shows a really vague personality. I’d like to hear Mr. Jobs side.

    I found this book to be bit “twee.” Ms Brenann came across as pretentious and a bit selfish. When she was in CC her teacher said he only gave four or five A’s a year and they didn’t mean much to the students receiving them...then Ms Brennan makes a point of saying, “He was right. It didn’t mean anything” thereby making the point that she received an A and belying the fact that it didn’t mean anything. I must confess that was the end of it for me. I quit reading and am not sorry I did.

    This is a tender story that truly humanizes Steve Jobs. The story of his youth, spirituality and love and how it led to Steve creating the Apple empire. The love Chrisann has for Steve and Lisa is evident thorough out the book and an interesting perspective on the man known for both his genius and his tyranny.

    A part of history that needed and deserved to be told. Shared in a loving and totally transparent way.
