Steve Jobs Releases Taiwanese Self-Help Book For Teenagers Translated By Dead Avant Garde Composer [Humor]



Can’t wait to get your hands on Steve Jobs official biography later this year? How about biding your time with a tome of wisdom handed down from The Man himself? Then Steve Jobs Gives 11 Advices To Teenager! by Steve Jobs might be just the book for you!

Granted, it’s a little hard to find in America. You’ll have to pay $8 for it online and wait for it to ship to you from Taiwan. Nor is it exactly clear what “11 advices” Mr. Jobs gave, to which teenager (singular), and upon which occasion.

Even so, Steve Jobs Gives 11 Advices To Teenager! is a rousing success in Taiwan, where it rocketed to a number five position on the Taiwanese Best Seller Charts. And if that’s not enough to recommend it, the entire book was translated by the famous avant garde composer John Cage, who is apparently alive and well in Taipei! Whats a wonderful choice for a man to translate Jobs! After all, they’re both Buddhists!
