A little too cynical sounding for me in his narration. I really wish the author had read it instead.
The book dragged on for me, but I found the story of Steve Jobs so fascinating I'm really glad I read it. I love that it shows how this kid that doesn't sound like he has a promising beginning ends up making this incredible company despite, or because?, he's so brutal in running it. It was fun living in the area he lived in and listening to this as I'd run by the Apple complex too, it made it so real for me. The message I most liked from the book is the idea that you can do anything you put your mind to, you can push your limits and can change boundaries.
Yes, because hearing about his journey through life and what he accomplished in such a short time is very inspiring.
Steve Jobs. I really enjoyed hearing him talk about how he evolved Apple and all the trials and tribulations along the way. He was just plain and simply fascinating to me.
I think his voice, inflections, tone, and emphasis were just right. I thinks this is the kind of reader Steve Jobs would want to read his biography.
I was sad that such a brilliant visionary, developer and business entuapeneur had ot die before his time.
I would recommend the book to anyone and everyone.
Truth Love Joy
If they are not a Steve/Steve enthusiast.
Woz's book was more fun.
I got the book on audible after hearing my mother enthuse about how good a read it was. Since listening to it, I've been trying to get everyone I know to do so as well. Dylan Baker reads the writing very well and truly delivers the feelings and thoughts that might be lost if simply reading the book. It really makes you feel as if you knew the people involved.
I haven't listened to or read that many biographies, however, I would happily place this book in the novel category in terms of just how listenable and interesting it is.
Dylan Baker, as I said before, brings a depth to the narrative, allowing the people spoken about to come to life. THough this may be the case when you read the stories as well, listening to them brings a deeper meaning to the work.
This is a book where I've wanted to sit and listen to it all day. It is 25 hours however, and I have many things to do where listening to it would be too distracting because it is so compelling a read.
The story just drones on about seemingly the same thing...Jobs was an ass who treated people like sh*t. He might have been brilliant, but he was a prick. After a few hours of listening to the same theme over and over...I had enough.
Interesting story about a fascinating man who led an unconventional life. Well told (and read) with a balanced perspective.
I just started listening so not enough to rate this yet
Many interesting but not necessarily very memorable moments
It was over-done with unnecessary "acting the part"
Steve Jobs - the extreme drive of a complex man
inspiring, balanced and insightful
The voice is great!
Cry. The last part, Steve's last words are so moving.
