VERY cool way to glimpse into the life of someone who changes the world. I enjoyed every minute
I was on the fence if I wanted to take in a 25 hour audiobook, but it was well worth it. As a casual Apple fan, there was tons of stuff I did not know about the life of Steve Jobs. This book is not just an Apple book, and it isn't just for fanboys. It's a book for anyone who can appreciate a story about one of the greatest creative minds of any time. The material on Steve's ways of thinking (in advertising, design) are great business lessons for creative thinkers. The book drags a little when it gets to the more recent products, but that's my only criticism in an otherwise extremely (extremely!) satisfying listen.
A fascinating (read) listen about a man that I'd not known anything about, other than he was born in the same year I was.
Steve Jobs was obviously a brilliant man, yet common as all of us in many, many ways.
I can't help but wonder, if the mapping problems the iPhone 5 has at its recent release would it have been released with Jobs present? Things that make you go hmmm. Because of that mapping release, I can't help but wonder will Apple be able to maintain its perfectionism?
I listened to this audio book while commuting over the last few weeks. There where times when i did not want to get out of the car and could have listened all day. Such a great way to fill mindless time instead of listening to the junk on the radio.
Nurse. Foodie. Spiritually Motivated.
Wonderfully insightful read. A rare glimpse into the life of a very interesting person.
If I could sit in one spot for 25 hours, most definitely.
story is very believable and provides a wonderful insight into a an incredibly creative person who could not even take good care of himself causing his own death at a very young age
I learned that even with severe personality quirks Jobs had, he was brilliant at making Apple successful.
The conversation with Bill Gates just prior to his death.
I'm not sure
It was an incredible experience.
A must read.
Yes, the dialogue between characters in essential points of history were real events in audible!
First conflict between Jobs and Gates
There were too many for me to choose.
His relationship with his oldest daughter. I was angry, but it was part of the openess given to the author.
Will be sharing it with my son who has an internet firm. We have had Apple computers since the first one!
As a long time mac enthusiast this book was enlightening and really gave some insight into Steve Jobs and the decisions made throughout the years. I had several..."oh, that's why they did that" moments. I like how the author covered certain topics as a whole rather than just a chronological biography. Great book.
A top notch audiobook for sure. Surprisingly an intimate look into his life through a timeline of products.
Of course Steve Jobs!
Steve Jobs return to Apple!
No, the audiobook it is too long but I did listen for long periods of time.
What an icon Steve Jobs is even today. I think he is an interesting study of creativity and innovation. His design instincts and passion for innovation will long be missed.
