Two of the greatest business minds of our time — Apple founder Steve Jobs and Sam Walton, the man behind Wal-Mart — are the subjects of recent biographies written by remarkable men in their own right.

Fortune magazine managing editor Andy Serwer ’81 spoke with Walter Isaacson and John Huey, the biographers who got inside the heads of these extraordinary leaders, and found “if you really drill down into their lives and careers, all kinds of really cool insights emerge.”

Highlights of Serwer’s conversation with these men appear in the piece, “Steve Jobs vs. Sam Walton: The Tale of the Tape,” in Fortune’s December 3, 2012, issue.
