This book does a great job is showing many sides of Steve Jobs. In short he is a fascinating person. However what this book does a great job of is showing where his real brilliance is versus where his lucky guesses have been. Also it give startling accounts of his tyrannical leadership that has become synonymous with Steve Jobs. In the end it shows there is a lot more to this man than Apple and Pixar.
Creo que es una buen libro para aprender lo que no se debe hacer. Un hombre interesante pero altamente dual y muchos problemsa de manejo de emociones.
I could not stop listening when I played this title and continued listening for seven straight hours - seriously no pause. Yes it might have been a waste of a perfectly good Saturday but I couldn't stop. Little things like the Jim Clark connection to the founders of Pixar and how that came back to play it self out many years later when Pixar and Netscape both went public in 1995 makes you think about how inbred Silicon Valley really is. How about the night Bill Gates made crank calls to Steve Jobs - now that is cool.
As a psychologist and avid Apple user, I found this book a great insight into the workings of a gifted, but eccentric individual. Well worth the time taken to listen if you want to hear how a character with both positives and faults can develop and flourish in the techno world we live in.
I love this audio book. There is a lot of insight to what makes the man tick and how he has helped change the world through Apple Computer and Pixar.
At the begining it sounded more like an "idealization" of Steve Jobs personality from the author, but actually, as the story develops, it actually ment to provide so much detail about Steve.
Further more, gives enough understanding about things or "headlines" that had made history. At least in the IT industry.
Story, Detail and good narration. I would have to say that it is a great book!
I really didn't know much about Apple and/or Steve being a UNIX person the last twenty years or so. With that in mind, I found this book fascinating esspecially the insights into Steve himself and the people and history behind Pixar. Great stuff..
To copy Jobs' style of leadership would probably be a disaster. After listening to his "come back," it sounds more like he lucked out with Pixar. I certainly was not impressed. Perhaps success at a young age hindered his maturity.
