[Perspectives] Reality change and check

Danny Boyle’s latest film is about Steve Jobs, and based mainly on a warts-and-all biography of the co-founder and driving force of the personal computer company Apple. Written by Walter Isaacson, the biography relied partly on interviews with Jobs held in 2009–11 after his diagnosis with pancreatic cancer in 2003; it was published in 2011, just after Jobs stepped down as head of Apple and shortly before his death.
