Intimate look inside the mind of an incredible man.
Through Issacson's humanization of Steve, I feel like I personally knew Steve Jobs. The lessons learned in this book can be applied to everyone's life & career; attention to detail, being motivated by products - not profits. A truly well written book about an inspiring man.
vocal is good to reflect the story and tone.
good and bad, evil and angel, nothing to hide.
I didn't read the book previously, thought it might be polished to show only how good jobs was. surprisingly, author took the efforts to reflect what jobs was as human, the weakness and strong points. The narrator didn't do nothing wired to ruin the book. overall, I give 5 stars to the audio book! highly recommend to anyone new to audible for the first time listening the book.
Yes, it's a great story.
It showed the good and the bad.
No i haven't, but i would.
That is s@$t!
I enjoyed learning much more about the history of Apple and computers. The marketing strategies was also enlightening.
The stories about his upbringing, family dynamics and incidents with his "friends".
His voice and intonation patterns continually annoyed me and often I had trouble concentrating on the story because of this narrator. I even considered stopping and getting the hard copy.
I was appalled at Jobs behavior and his treatment of his friends and employees. For someone who spent time at an ashram in India and purported to meditate - he was not caring or compassionate with others. This book certainly lowered my opinion of him.
I would have liked a bit more insight, editorializing about his poor behavior. But that is probably another book. Was he a spoiled child who carried his feeling of entitlement into his adulthood? Was he borderline Aspergers? I would like more insight into what drove this man and his demons.
ER Nurse, love to be goofy and have fun. Mostly a nonfiction reader...go figure!
I don't know that it's better but it is more convenient to 'read' while driving 150 miles to work every week. Sometimes, I sit in the car after I've arrived at my destination just to hear the finish of a chapter.
Steve Jobs, of course.
I think where he comes back to Apple and makes it victorious
I very much prefer the audio version, since I hate reading. I thank God for audio books, because I would have missed out on not just a brilliantly written book, but most importantly, I would have missed out on getting to know this most one-of-a-kind, brilliant, phenomenal human being that is 'Steve Jobs'.
Steve Jobs by far. Thank God for Steve Jobs. Thank you Steve for "staying hungry, staying foolish" your whole life. Steve Jobs is and was a most Brilliant, Phenomenal, Unique, One-of-a-kind human being. He will not and cannot be replaced. He left the world a better place than he met it. Steve your 'person' would be missed; but your spirit would surely live on. Steve, a 'Jobs' very well done.
Well done. Very clean and clear execution .
I was moved by the entire book; from beginning to end.
I couldn't do a better job. A 'Jobs' well done.
Certainly interesting to get into the mind of somebody like Jobs but would not want to make you stay there for any length of time. Very glad my only interactions with the man were using his products.
Let me start by saying that I am not typically a fan of biographies, but this one intrigued me. And after listening, all I can say is WOW! Steve Jobs was an amazing person, brash and difficult along the way, but still managed to inspire people to innovate in a way others couldn't. The story is incredibly well-written, and narrated by Dylan Baker in way that makes you want to keep listening. I give this 5 stars - start listening now! You won't be disappointed.
Jobs did more to advance personal technology than almost anyone else in history, but it came at a cost.
I expected to leave this book with more respect for Jobs and what he accomplished but what it really did was left me questioning where his priorities really were.
It was a great read and I appreciate that he didn't want anything sugar coated but looking back I wonder if he would have done anything differently.
Retired RN from the Navy/Marine Corps. I'm 49 years old and enjoy reading and working with my computer and Nexus 7 tablet. I'm single and live alone so my reading and computer keeps me company. I also have a monk parrot to play with...his name is Baby!
I felt like I was getting to really understand and getting to know him through the book. He was a guru and a genius with technology and having the knowledge of what consumers wanted as well as needed in their everyday lives. May he rest in peace...the world will miss him.
His early formative years were very interesting and informative.
Steve Jobs quotations
Yes...it kept me very interested in the subject.
Very good read..i hope more geeks, ordinary people take the time to get to know Steve Jobs the man.
