Steve Jobs refused Tim Cook's offer to donate liver


The man who took that big bite out of the apple, Steve Jobs, was offered a way to keep building his tech empire, but refused it.

Tim Cook, Apple's current CEO, offered Jobs part of his liver to help fight his pancreatic cancer – something Jobs refused to even consider immediately.

This was revealed in the upcoming biography, "Becoming Steve Jobs: The Evolution of a Reckless Upstart into a Visionary Leader." The book includes interviews with Jobs' friends, including Cook, his family and some top people from Apple and Pixar.

"You have to trust in something, your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever."

Cook even went as far as getting tested, finding out he and Jobs had the same blood type. He then found the rate of liver transplant success is very high. He went to Jobs with the good news, but was flat out rejected.

In an excerpt from the book, posted by Fast Company since its executive editor is a co-author, it was revealed Cook said there wasn't even a hesitation to Jobs' decision:

"He doesn't think about it. It was not, 'Are you sure you want to do this?'... It was, 'No, I'm not doing that!' ... Steve only yelled at me four or five times during the 13 years I knew him, and this was one of them."

Jobs died in 2011 from pancreatic cancer.
