Apple's Eddy Cue Says 'Becoming Steve Jobs' First Biography to 'Get it Right"

Apple Senior Vice President Eddy Cue endorsed the upcoming biography Becoming Steve Jobs: The Evolution of a Reckless Upstart into a Visionary (Amazon, iBooks) as the first book about Steve Jobs "to get it right." Mr. Cue issued back to back tweets about Steve Jobs, the first criticizing the documentary Steve Jobs: Man in the Machine.

Most of the top executives who worked for Steve Jobs at Apple have been critical of books such as Walter Isaacson's Steve Jobs, the only book written with cooperation from Mr. Jobs himself. Tim Cook, Sir Jony Ive, and others have criticized it as improperly focusing on negative aspects of Mr. Jobs's personality. Ashton Kutcher's Jobs film was also criticized for inaccuracies and creative liberties taken with history.

Last week, a large portion of Becoming Steve Jobs was revealed through an Amazon preview. That preview showed that many Apple executives, including Eddy Cue, granted extensive interviews to Brent Schlender and Rick Tetzeli, the authors of Becoming Steve Jobs.

Here's what Mr. Cue had to say about the book:

A few minutes before that tweet, he posted this about the documentary Steve Jobs: Man in the Machine.

Becoming Steve Jobs will be released March 24th. You can preorder it from Amazon or iBooks.
