The Zen Of Steve Jobs: Buyer’s Guide – Forbes

The Zen of Steve JobsForbes and JESS3 are proud to present The Zen Of Steve Jobs, a graphic novella that explores Jobs’ friendship with a Zen priest and the impact it had on Jobs’ career.

Maria Popova of the Brainpickings blog calls it “unexpectedly rich in its graphic simplicity” and “a fine addition to these 10 favorite masterworks of graphic nonfiction.‘s Ron Mwangaguhunga calls it “one of the most brilliantly imaginative graphic novels in recent memory” and included it on his list of 10 graphic novels that must be made into a movie.

The Zen of Steve Jobs tells the story of a relationship and collaboration between Jobs and 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.
