Oh Dear

I finished the Steve Jobs book a couple of days ago. It's an interesting read, albeit - and perhaps inevitably given the circumstances - rushed and containing some repetitions and infelicitous expressions that would have benefited from an editor's blue pencil.

I had to laugh around page 25 when I read:
Jobs began sharing with Kottke other books, including Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind by Shunryu Suzuki, Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda, and Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism by Chögyam Trungpa.
I've read two of them this year, leaving me only an Autobiography of a Yogi short of the full set, and I've even been pondering that though vaguely.

Prodnose: Bleedin' hippy.

Myself: It gets worse.
