Let me start by saying that I am not typically a fan of biographies, but this one intrigued me. And after listening, all I can say is WOW! Steve Jobs was an amazing person, brash and difficult along the way, but still managed to inspire people to innovate in a way others couldn't. The story is incredibly well-written, and narrated by Dylan Baker in way that makes you want to keep listening. I give this 5 stars - start listening now! You won't be disappointed.
Jobs did more to advance personal technology than almost anyone else in history, but it came at a cost.
I expected to leave this book with more respect for Jobs and what he accomplished but what it really did was left me questioning where his priorities really were.
It was a great read and I appreciate that he didn't want anything sugar coated but looking back I wonder if he would have done anything differently.
Retired RN from the Navy/Marine Corps. I'm 49 years old and enjoy reading and working with my computer and Nexus 7 tablet. I'm single and live alone so my reading and computer keeps me company. I also have a monk parrot to play with...his name is Baby!
I felt like I was getting to really understand and getting to know him through the book. He was a guru and a genius with technology and having the knowledge of what consumers wanted as well as needed in their everyday lives. May he rest in peace...the world will miss him.
His early formative years were very interesting and informative.
Steve Jobs quotations
Yes...it kept me very interested in the subject.
Very good read..i hope more geeks, ordinary people take the time to get to know Steve Jobs the man.
This book ranks at the top of the list. Highly recommend.
How it truly captures who Steve Jobs was unfiltered!
Steve Jobs' progression and thoughts on death.
Even if you're not a Steve Jobs fan, you will still walk away with a feeling of being enriched by the story.
This is an enjoyable bio of Jobs - but you get more than that. You get the history of Apple, all the major Apple products and background on the other people besides Jobs that had major parts to play. I like history and computer history especially, so I really enjoyed these aspects of the book.
There were a few parts of the book where it was difficult to tell which person was being quoted. This is only a minor complaint. I expect the written book was probably more clear.
Anyone interested in jobs, Apple, Apple products or the history of computing will find something interesting here.
I wish they had used a different reader. I didn't feel like he like Steve Jobs.
I haven't read the print version. If I have time I would probably prefer to read it rather than to listen. But I was enjoying listening to it on my to/from work.
I am glad that although it's Steve Job's biography, the book also talks about many people who met Jobs at different stages of his life.
No favorite scenes - all the parts are quite good.
Great book. It's not just about Steve Jobs but also about the time and place, and people that he grew up and lived with.
This was my first audiobook, I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it.
