Jobs instead tried alternative therapies, which he later regretted.
Talking about his upcoming book Steve Jobs, Isaacson says:

Steve Jobs will be allowing a biography to be released via Simon & Schuster publishing about the Apple CEO's life, to be titled iSteve: The Book of Jobs, and written by Walter Isaacson, with a 2012 release!
Apparently, the author has previously written biographies, but only for already-deceased folks like Albert Einstein and Ben Franklin. However, he's been hard at work on the Jobs project since 2009, and has had complete access to his friends and family.
So we guess that means we'll know all about his health scares then! Inneresting!
Could be worth a read! We imagine he's had a pretty fascinating life!
What do U think?? Do U want to read The Book of Jobs??
