Would recommend to others. Especially "techies".
His early days of doing drugs.
It's non-fiction, so he didn't perform the characters.
The need to always seek perfection, which is the basis of products like the iPod and the iPhone.
Visionary, Leader, Creative
Most memorable moment was his personal story.. how he found himself.
Passion should be the basis for your goals.
I've listened to this 3 times and will easily hear it again in the near future. Do not pass on the opportunity to hear this epic story of the legendary Steve Jobs.
The world lost a great man!
My interest in apple and how it became the powerhouse it is today got me interested in the life of Steve Jobs. This biography was incredibly in depth and made me feel as though I was in the story, watching it unfold.
The truth in it. It didn't make Steve out to be an angel, but it didn't make him an enemy. It was an honest, unbiased viewpoint of the man behind the Apple.
Dylan Baker was phenomenal. His voice is soothing without being disinteresting, and the nuance in his inflections made me feel as though he were reading the story directly to me. Excellent, easy read.
I would enjoy them both.
I thoroughly enjoyed learning about how Apple become the Apple we know today. It made me look at all my Apple devices in a different light.
Loved his readings of the quotes, especially the more heated ones. He brought a little extra "oomph" to some of those swears.
No, I listened to it in 9 days, but I didn't have any specific goal.
I thought this was a phenomenal read. Well written, unbelievably interesting, and entertaining. Learning how Apple became the Apple we know today was so fascinating and enlightening. I certainly look at all my Apple products differently. I definitely recommend it
Yes, giving a great and deep view about Jobs's experiences, also highlighting a very important era that started what is now the PC, the book talks about the competition between major companies in the field.
Ive, the head of design at Apple.
Yes, great performance
Steve jobs getting cancer and the value of life in his eyes, that reflected how bad those who have doubts about Allah's existence and religion can look to the life.
Steve Jobs is a unique human being. This is the authoritative biography by an author who was given access to key people who interacted with Steve Jobs. Not entirely flattering, but honest and informative.
No, just a matter of preference.
I would not make a comparison he was a very unique personality.
When he learned that he was adopted and decided to embrace his father's: "We choose you"
I, for some reason, resisted this book until I got a direct recommendation and I'm so glad I took the plunge. It's one of the best audiobooks ever for me. Isaacson's approach is easy to follow, well-paced, making connections without forcing false conclusions. It covers the technological revolution we've all been living through with one of the key players and Steve Jobs, in Isaacson's hands, is a fascinating character. It dragged for me only on very rare occasions. I found I was frequently looking up people or things that were talked about to read more or see a picture. I learned a lot and enjoyed every minute! I followed up with the DVD called Pirates of Silicon Valley, a TV movie made in 1999, which followed the early years of Jobs and Bill Gates, ending in 1997. It's on Itunes if you're in the U.S, which I'm not, but luckily library carried it. Time to find a good book about Bill Gates!
Yes. It is an inspiring story of how a person with a passion gets things done. I would not necessarily employ the same tactics.
One must not give up when faced with failure or rejection.
