Steve Jobs loved reading books – mostly spiritual ones. However, the only book that Steve had downloaded on his Apple iPad 2 for regular reading was – Autobiography of a Yogi.
It is an autobiography written by Paramahansa Yogananda (January 5, 1893–March 7, 1952) in 1946, in which he discusses his life story,and which introduced many Westerners to meditation and yoga. The book describes Yogananda’s search for a guru, and his encounters with leading spiritual figures such as Therese Neumann, the Hindu saint Sri Anandamoyi Ma, Mohandas Gandhi, Rabindranath Tagore, Nobel Prize-winning physicist Sir C. V. Raman, and noted American plant scientist Luther Burbank, to whom it is dedicated. (source: Wikipedia.org)
As mentioned in Walter Isaacson’s ‘Steve Jobs’ – Steve loved reading this book from time to time. In fact, made sure to read it once every year. Probably gave him and his soul the spiritual solace he always yearned for; and reminded him of his hippie youth, and travels through India in search of a spiritual guru.
