There is no substitute for working with a genius on a daily basis. Everything I have read about Steve Jobs is from the outside - from somebody who has done interviews and research. This book is from a man who observed the daily working habits and decision making process of one of the most creative and brilliant men of our generation. Until the authorized biography of Jobs is released in 2012 - this is the best book about the man himself.
If you are a HBS Alum or in some way associated with HBS - then you will love this book. This is really a story about the lives of three Harvard Business School Alums starting businesses and their experiences in the HBS Program. I guess I was looking for less of an advertisement and more of a guideline for successful strategies and characteristics of entrepreneours. Narration was average, the material was simply lame or even corny in many parts of the book.
