Interesting, inspiring, imaginative. all starts with i's
Steve jobs, he's an ass, but his bitchyness gave us the technology we have today. I love his passion for perfection. even to the point where he refused to wear an ugly oxygen mask.
Performance of writer: It was not well revised, i just think it's missing something i can't put a finger on. good story though.
performance of narrator: good at some parts, but dude, get the names right. he pronounced lion os x
The adventure of a crazy man.
I love steve jobs, his story, his ideas. so this is a good book for me.
once is enough
it seams that he is only a salesman the brains was woz
Say something about yourself!
This was an interesting read/listen. I never imagined Jobs was such a jerk. It was however very entertaining and brought back memories of the beginning years of the personal compuater and the rivalries between Apple and Microsoft.
he was alright.
So many different groups of people had similar reactions to Jobs and they either praised him or demonized him.
Steve Jobs was not the most great man to have as a boss, but his inovative ideas have changed the world. He pulled Apple out of the garbage when he lost and then regained control. He stuck to his principles and spin our world around. Emmensly enjoyed listening about his life. His wife and family have so must to be proud of. I hope Apple does not stray to far from his visions again.
There are many books about great peope out there
Makes you so much more apprecaitive of his music
The whole book moved me, from start top finish
I sincerely hope there will be more books to read about modern men, who strive to accomplish their visions. This would also apply to women.
this was so good, I couldn't stop listening to it. My wife literally begged me to stop talking about Steve Jobs all the time. Anyone interested in business, technology, or entrepreneurship should commit to this soon. It's so inspiring a book, even if Jobs isn't your favorite person. Do it!
In starting this book, I was skeptical that I would enjoy it. I usually stay away from non-fiction but we are an Apple family and my husband wanted to read it too. This book took me awhile to get through but I enjoyed practically every minute of it. There were maybe one or two sections that I could have done without, such as what music Steve had on his ipod. Aside from getting a really in depth view into this man's very exciting and successful life, I also gained an insight into the reasons behind his success. The biographer does not superficially paint job in a positive light. Instead, he shows how Jobs' methods worked to make Apple the amazing company that it is today. At one point it is said, that if they could have better combined Jobs' stern way of operating and high expectation with Wozniak's playful, friendly approach that working at Apple might be a perfect experience. But, just as Steve is not perfect, Apple has it's flaws as well. I love that by working closely with Jobs the author is able to carefully layout Steve's intricate thinking and forethought that went into creating the products that I know and love. The narrator did a great job keeping my interest and relaying the words of Isaacson. I recommend this book to anyone whether or tech geek or not.
Really an incredible read and narration that not only gives a clear picture of who Steve was and what he accomplished, but also explains why he became the man he was by examining his entire life from beginning to end. Highly recommend.
The writer's ability to take multiple complex elements and weave them into a cohesive and accessible whole.
I can't recall reading another book like this, but I can certainly think of individuals in history who had a similar mix of genius, the demonic, profound insight and a touch of mental disorder.
I have not listened to other performances by Dylan Baker.
The three faces of Steve :-)
For all my ambivalence about Steve Jobs and Apple (becoming even more ambivalent after reading the book) I stand in awe of this man, his genius and his vision. This book was accessible, as balanced as it could be (aware of its own flaws) and fascinating. I couldn't stop listening.
The true and raw story...loved it!
Steve jobs the truth, the sad the reality!
This is a must read, listen buy...etc!
