CNN talks with Jobs biographer Walter IsaacsonIf Walter Isaacson’s 600-plus page tome covering the life of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs left you wanting more, CNN recently sat down with the writer as well as John Huey, author of the Sam Walton tell-all, to shed some additional light on two of the most influential businessmen ever. The chat covers everything from Jobs’ showmanship regarding product reveals to both men’s refusal to play by anyone else’s rules.

When the topic of whether either man could be considered a “genius” pops up, both biographers put the label firmly on Jobs, with Huey comparing Steve Jobs to Thomas Edison and Sam Walton to Henry Ford. You can read the full article on Fortune’s website, or catch it in the December issue of Fortune magazine.
