A fascinating subject. Very well crafted story. Very captivating story. 25 hours of narration and I was disappointed it was done. Could, and will, listen to it again. Looking forward to exploring the author's other works.
I really enjoyed this book. This is a very balanced Bio of an incredible guy who altered modern culture in countless ways.
Yes. Interesting and very easy to listen to because narrator's voice was pleasant.
The story of Apple"s inception and growth.
Didn't realize how extreme Jobs was in his personal and professional life.
As a business owner, I've always been fascinated about Steve Jobs and the giant company he created but I never had any real insight into his actual personality other than the things that the media has mentioned about him.
Listening to his biography gave me a much grater insight into his life, how and why he made certain decisions and why his company grew to the juggernaut that it is today.
The book is well written and narrated. The Narrator is easy to listen to and the story flows quite nicely from beginning to end.
if you're an apple fan, a business owner or lead a group of people in any way shape or form, this book will certainly give you some perspective.
Steve Jobs had a complex personality. He was an artist at heart. He was happiest when building things; but also a prick to others while doing so. This book does an excellent job at untangling his perplexing personality.
A good book for someone who wants to see the world as Jobs saw the world.
yes, but only as a secondary source.
Outlandish, perfectionistic, realisitically-unrealisitic.
The story cannot be disected. It is a whole story or it is no story.
Any of the "you are an idiot" or "this is crap" stories.
I really enjoyeed the sense of passion and that evoked a spirit of excitement within me.
The real Jobs-get to know the man, good and bad.
I am listening to the last chapter, knowing I will miss my daily Steve Jobs.
Isaacson does a great job peeling back the curtain on the life of one the most influential characters of our time.
If you are "in" the tech world, a lot of character flaws and tales highlighted by the author may not be new, but if you are a just user of Jobs' products it's a very eye opening account.
There is no doubt this is one of the most in-depth and complete biographies on Steve Jobs, but I don't believe their was anything new (of great value) shared in the book.
Wether you knew the life and trials of Jobs, or not, this is a fantastic look at the ups, downs and ups of a very influential character.
I also suggest you read 'Icon' as a further look into the 'darker' side of Steve Jobs.
The narrator's pronunciation was definitely a distraction, but the author did a great job. I recommended it to a friend for their nook.
