Steve Jobs' Management Genius Doesn't Work Well in His Personal Life /March 17, 2018 by Muhammad Amir Ayub Steve Jobs' eldest daughter on his late father: In the book, titled Small Fry, Brennan-Jobs recounts how Jobs was “rarely present” in the early years of her life, as he denied paternity. As she grew older, however, Jobs began to show an interest in her and apologized for his behavior. The memoir’s description notes that Jobs ushered his daughter into a “new world of mansions, vacations, and private schools.” Brennan-Jobs was “thrilled” to receive attention from her father, but he could be “cold, critical and unpredictable” at times, echoing stories about his management style at Apple. Nobody's perfect; everyone's flawed in some way. Balance is not possible. Get over it.
