Lisa Brennan-Jobs, a daughter of the longtime Apple CEO Steve Jobs, has published an excerpt from her coming memoir, "Small Fry" - and it contains heartbreaking details about her hard relationship with her father.
Here are four revelations about the Apple billionaire from Ms Brennan-Jobs' book, after an excerpt was published in Vanity Fair magazine on Friday.
Who is Lisa Brennan-Jobs? Spoiler alert - though things got better between, there was no grand reconciliation (Steve died at age 56 on October 5, 2011 after he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.) "For him, I was a blot on a spectacular ascent, as our story did not fit with the narrative of greatness and virtue he might have wanted for himself".
Although Jobs eventually acknowledged Brennan-Jobs as his daughter, he maintained a distant cold relationship towards his eldest child until he died.
Just before Apple made history by surpassing $1 trillion in market value, Steve Jobs' daughter opened up about her troubled relationship with the company's cofounder.
She said she remembers asking him in high school whether the Lisa was named after her, and the answer she received was "Nope".
Three days after Ms Brennan-Jobs was born, Jobs arrived and kept saying "It's not my kid", she writes.
In the year leading up to Jobs' death, Ms Brennan-Jobs said she would visit her father every other month.

Weather stalls rescue of Aussie climber
Poor weather further delayed the rescue until Friday, when Harch was lifted off the mountain by helicopter-borne rescuers. Harch parked his auto last Friday to climb the mountain and was expected back on Monday, authorities say.
"For him, I was a blot on a spectacular ascent", Brennan-Jobs wrote in the book, out September 4.
Brennan-Jobs, 40, was born two years after Jobs created the Californian company with Steve Wozniak, remembers him as a hard man who "was not generous with money, or food, or words". "You understand? Nothing. You're getting nothing". "My existence ruined his streak", she wrote.
A later paternity test found that he was the father and was ordered to pay back child support.
Lisa had told her friends about her namesake, but to her dismay, they hadn't heard about Apple's Lisa.
According to Chrisann, Jobs "started to seed people with the notion that I slept around and he was infertile, which meant that this could not be his child".
"'That's the first time he's said yes, ' I told Bono". 'You understand? Nothing. You're getting nothing.' Did he mean about the vehicle, something else, bigger?
Then Bono asked, "So, was the Lisa computer named after her?" I didn't know. His voice hurt-sharp, in my chest, Brennan-Jobs recounts. However, when faced with the same question years later from U2's Bono inside the singer's exuberant villa on the Côte d'Azur (which Bono showed to the father-daughter duo "as if he couldn't quite believe it was his") Jobs coughed up the truth: yes, it was.
