I would highly recommend this book. It it read in a very steady clear pace. Very detailed and informative on a great man who helped change the world. One of my favorite books thus far.
Being a child of the 90's, I have grown up with Jobs as the manifestation of what is wrong with computers.
I decided to give this book a whirl after many positive reviews from friends. I can firm say that I have reached a level of admiration for Mr. Jobs that I didn't expect to be possible.
This book has given me a chance to appreciate the products that were created under Steve Jobs with a better understanding of how they came into existence. Steve Jobs lived a life to make enemies first and this book holds no bar representation of his life.
Well written an well narrated book. Although not a big fan of Apple, I enjoyed every minute of this book.
Book is written and researched very well. It shows the greatness and negativity of Jobs. It would be very inspirational to folks who are starting out early in their careers.
It's all about painting both sides of the fence.
I loved this book so much. The narrator captured the essence of Steve Jobs when he was reading his parts. I started with an Apple II as my first computer. Also as a business owner I can identify what he went through. This book is a must if you're an entrepreneur or work in technology. This book should be required reading for all. high school kids. It is a look into a brilliant mind. Shows star can be achieved by hard work and a strong work ethic. Something that is seriously lacking now a days.
Books and more books....I hardly listen to music anymore.
What can I say? This man and his company changed the way I look at life! I'm not saying he made me a better man, or that because I enjoy Apple products that it's because of him. What I'm saying is, the way Steve viewed the world is the way we should all aspire to view the world. It's not just zeros and ones. Life is full of obstacles, and if you try to overcome these obstacles with a narrow mind (zeros and ones) than you are destined to fail. Instead, think of life as trying to put a square "peg and in round hole". Overcome the impossible by "think"ing "different"!
Walter Isaacson did a great job in writing this book, it's exactly what an biography is supposed to be. Great job, great read!
The performance was just as good, the narrators inflections were where they needed to be every time. Although I know the words are Isaacson's, the narrator read it as though they were his!
