Had to stop reading after author described both the Library of Congress and Notre Dame Cathedral as "Baroque". I guess you could make the case for Beaux-Arts being a subset of Baroque, but Notre Dame? Come on--that was hundreds of years before Baroque.

I've always seen Jobs/Apple as more of a cult than a religion.
