Walter Isaacson and Steve Jobs

So Isaacson has a book out on Steve Jobs.  So read this piece.  He then tells you that Jobs remind him of Benjamin Franklin and Einstein (he had written two books on the last two).  So he wrote to promote his book on jobs, and managed to plug two other books.  I should probably be embarrassed to admit that I read those books.  But Isaacson also has a massive book on Henri Kissinger: in 800 pages, he manages to whitewash the crimes of that man.  There is no less critical treatment of Kissinger, since the old book by the Zionist brothers, Kalb.  In fact, Isaacson's book on Kissinger is what propelled him in US establishment circles.

PS Is not Isaacson wrong when he says "he was not particularly religious"?  Was not Einstein an avowed atheist?
