Just like the legends of Odysseus, Jason, Krishna or Christ, the Jobs' mythology contains the same key elements:
* The call to adventure: joining the Homebrew Computer Club.
* A helper: Steve Wozniak.
* A wondrous journey: the explosive growth of the early PC industry.
* Trials: competition from IBM and failures like the Lisa and Apple III.
* More helpers: the engineers and artists who created the first Mac.
* Apotheosis: Jobs is anointed as the technology industry's seer, a prophet.
* Flight: the expulsion from Apple and a decade in the wilderness at Next Computer.
* Resurrection: the return to Apple.
* The boon that restores the world -- the iMac and subsequent hit products.
