It's a great story. Isaacson captures the details well.
Jobs gave amazing access to Isaacson so it's more in depth than most biographies. It was raw, honest, and pretty cool to get a glimpse into his world.
A little slow in the beginning and the time line jumps around a little bit, so I found it more difficult to get through in the book format. In the audio version you can just take it in and not worry so much about the slower parts.
No. It's way too long. I did it over the course of a month 5-6 hours at a time. I looked forward to getting back to it.
A little slow in the beginning and the time line jumps around a little bit, but overall a great story.
Steve Jobs' bio is an amazing read for anyone and especially technologists. Isaacson looked from every angle at Jobs' life and didn't pull any punches in this balanced view of an often unbalanced man. Every success and every failure are pulled apart so the reader can get an uninhibited view of one of the most culturally and technologically influential men of our time. This is the THE book about Steve Jobs.
Personality: Intellectually Driven
The content is very fluid and detail (too much sometimes) and gives you a great inside into Steve Job's live, either if you are a Fan of Job's or a Historian looking for the development of the personal computer arena, this book will fulfill your expectations.
The narrator was good but he had well written material to work with.
I can't pick just one moment. Learning the behind the scenes decisions about Apple and the Mac and all of the products that have evolved over time was really interesting. And getting to know the Steve Jobs persona along the way is fascinating.
Great book. One I will listen to again.
This was my first audio book, specifically to listen too after eye surgery. I found the narration to be quite good. The story of Steve Jobs was inspiring and eye opening. Gave me a much deeper respect for his design sense as well as all the other things that made Steve Steve.
Dylan did a fantastic job narrating
Much too long a book for one sitting, but it did keep me engaged.
I'm thinking that non fiction is my favorite for audible, fiction for old fashioned eyeballs
I liked the personal insight I finally had on someone that I feel I've know my whole life.
It is especially nice to have an audio book on a road trip. My boyfriend & I were able to listen to the book all the way from San Diego to San Francisco & back again. It was great since a lot of the places we drove trough & visited were mentioned in the book. Also, it was nice to be able to have a book we were literally reading the same page! It inspired great discussions. We'll be doing this more often!
He was definately an interesting character and i imagine you either really liked him or really hated him
Steve Jobs. You would have to hear the book to understand.
Mostly i was surprised at what Steve Jobs was like.
Knowing that Steve Jobs and his wife didn't want to read the book before it was published or have any say it what was written made the book that much better. They wanted only the truth to be written, whether it was bad or good.
I have heard of this book a long time ago. I finally find the chance to listen to it.
yes. It is kind of funny.
The part which Jobs didn't want to have any input of the book, beside the cover. He wanted his true story be told. Bravo on that.
The conflict of his personality.
I enjoyed this audio book. Kept my long distance drive seemed short and easy.
Yes, it was so interesting and entertaining as well.
No, it was much too long.
A very inspirational story which helped me to understand how Jobs innovated not only the computer industry but several others. After finishing the book I had to buy a MacBook which was used ti write this review.
