For those who can't make it through the 630 pages of Steve Jobs' biography, the New Yorker has captured the essence of the book in a 3,000 word article, reports FORTUNE.

Gladwell's thesis is that Jobs, at heart, was an information-age version of those 18th and early 19th century engineers who put Britain in the forefront of the industrial revolution by creating and perfecting the automatic mule for spinning cotton. Such men, according to a recent article by economists Ralf Meisenzahl and Joel Mokyr, provided the "micro inventions necessary to make macro inventions highly productive and remunerative." It's a strong thesis -- one that Isaacson doesn't offer his readers -- but what bring it to life in Gladwell's piece are the intimate and revealing details that he lifts from Isaacson's painstaking reporting.

So if you haven't been able to bring yourself to read book, you may want to try reading 'The Tweaker' by Malcolm Gladwell.
