    CONVERSATION - Conversations are panel discussions that provide an in-depth, up-to-the-minute look at a single topic. Featuring three to four thought leaders and an expert moderator, Conversations consist of a 60-minute discussion, followed by 15 minutes of audience q-and-a.

    In "Becoming Steve Jobs", veteran journalists Brent Schlender and Rick Tetzeli draw on extensive interviews with Jobs' inner circle, family members, friends and competitors to compile a rich portrait of the iconic leader whose reputation has been forever frozen as half genius, half jerk. In a Chicago Ideas Conversation, Schlender and Tetzeli sit down to answer the central question about the life and career of the Apple co-founder and CEO: How did someone so reckless and arrogant that he was exiled from his own company become the most effective business visionary of our time?
