Steve Jobs was an amazing visionary. This book gives a great level of insight into his inner-workings. I was able to draw parallels in my own life to understand others more deeply.
Wozniak. Such a nice guy.
Jobs' return to Apple and forcing all but two of the board of directors to resign.
It's not smart. It's genius.
Yes. Because it is a compelling story of one of the most important people of our generation.
Depends on the book. I agree with the people who have said that his is not the right voice for this book, but he might be fine in another context.
Even though I am pretty sure that Steve Jobs would have been extremely difficult to get along with, there's no denying that he was one of the most influential people of his time. I think it was probably the same qualities that made him so difficult that allowed him to express his genius, thus providing us with true paradigm-shifting products.
I was uncertain if I wanted to continue reading this book because it made me feel kind of dirty to get such an intimate and unflattering view of one of my idols, but felt compelled to do so. I'm glad I did but must confess that my opinion of Jobs has changed quite a bit. I'm glad I didn't know or work for him, but am grateful that other people bore his brunt to "change the world."
Have not read the print version.
But the audio version is good.
This is my first book so far.
Excellent narration by Dylan.His voice is too clear and anyone can easily understand with ease.
The story is well written and in a simple terminology. The words used are easy to understand. Well written .
This book ranks pretty high among my reads for the year.
The story of bringing Apple back, Pixar and the iPod all occurring around the same time. Wow! To make such an impact is absolutely amazing.
This was a well researched and well rounded look into Steve Job's life.
Steve Jobs for being himself.
No, but I enjoy his performance here.
Steve Jobs: Dream catcher
I liked the detail - lots of information most people don't know about Steve Jobs personally.
I suspect I would have liked this a lot better, had it been read by someone else. The narrator is really bad. He sounds amateurish, has a sing-song lilt that becomes annoying quickly, and sounds like a practiced high school reader. It gave the book a feeling of being amateurishly written, and I don't think that's the case.
The writing was excellent and the story was compelling. The book was a good history of the computer revolution and the story of how Apple climbed back to relevance was a wonderful lesson.
25 hours --- no shot at one sitting, as much fun as that would have been.
Get it. It is well worth it.
