The revelation of how difficult it is to keep focus without frustration. He could do what he did though health and happiness was honestly not some thing he could manufacture in himself.
It did'nt attempt to draw a conclusion, though it invited the reader to have the information to make up his or her own mind.
Walter Isaacson is a great biographer, and this is a wonderful book. Steve Jobs was an amazing genious. Isaacson doesn't sugar coat the story, thougth. He tells it all--the positive and the quirky aspect of Jobs' personality.
No. The narration was very well done. It was easy to listen to.
Very touching. This is one I'll long remember.
I highly recommend this book.
Extremely interesting to see into the mind of someone who lived as controversial as he was. Including other people's reactions to him made it more interesting. It held my attention because I wanted to see what he concluded in his later days.

That it just takes the time away and what Steve and his firends did.
Steve Jobs because he was very funny when he was young.
When he said he was adopted, I never knew that.
Just that Steve Jobs is a very good book to read and listen
I did not love the narrator, but in 2 seconds i was so absorbed into Steve Job's life , i simply could not put it down, being audio it made it easy to do tasks and be absorbed in this book.
It kept me so interested in this amazing life behind these amazing products..! Thanks to this book i now have a new found respect for Apple products which i use.
At the end when Steve Jobs was dying was very touching how hard he fought to keep going.
I am so glad that i know the back story of Apple, just beyond fascinating, i knew it was a loss when he died, but after reading this, i know its more than a loss.
I think autobiographies are usually only a one-time read, but possibly if I end up needing to do some research in the future I might.
The book covers so much of Steve Jobs life that you would never have known, so it's hard to pinpoint one thing. But I suppose his superior work ethic should be recognized.
When he spoke about flying to Kyoto for sushi with his son.
Sure... but that would have been impossible.
Two thumbs up!
Loved the book: contained the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. Everyone can relate to the man and the changes he inspired.
Right in the middle.
Yes, I would. I like the author. The story is written in a very clear manner, especially when intricate situations are explained.
He gives the book life with his tone and his cadence. I really enjoyed his voice.
No, nothing moved me in this story.
Now I have a better idea of the personality of Jobes and the way his business story developed.
Interesting, read poorly.
He read every quotation and bit of dialogue with a contemptuous, whiny, or bratty tone. It made it really hard to understand. It sounded like he hadn't read the book before sitting down to read it aloud to us. He has a good voice and reads clearly, but it's clear from his inflections and emphases that he does not comprehend what he is reading. My husband had no problem with his reading, but it really interfered with my understanding of the story. I would think that, given the fact that this book was sure to sell many copies, they would have invested in a better reader.
I read and listen to a lot of business books, and intended for this to be more of a light, entertaining read. Although it was certainly entertaining, it also offers some amazing insights into what it takes to create the most valuable company in the world. I am not a big Steve Jobs or Apple fan, and am no more or less a fan after reading this, but it was a very fascinating, well written, and well read account. I think the author did a great job of capturing who Jobs was, blemishes and all.
I was thoroughly entertained, and highly recommend this audio book.
