Effort he put into his kids before he died.
It was nice to hear the other sides of the stories that have been out there for years.
I knew a bit about Jobs and Apple from being a fan of the products and all the news around the time of his death. The book is a really great read. Jobs has a really fascinating life story. From adoption to a legacy that will live for decades and beyond. Hats off to Isaacson, I'll be sure to check out more of his books.
His creativity and his passion for perfection. While Jobs might have been, in my view, irrational in some ways, he was great in business and electronics. As he said, he married technology with the arts.
Yes. I felt that sometimes when the reader should have read objectively, he instead read with disdain for Steve Jobs. Not good at all.
I'm a trucker of nearly 25 years. Listening to the radio is a matter of habit for me, but hearing the same songs over and over and OVER again became old. Audio books help those miles roll by faster!
Yes, I would recommend this audiobook for anyone interested in the life and work of Steve Jobs in particular and the roots of the computer and hi-tech revolution in general.
The candid content
The last chapter, concluding with Steve Jobs own words about what legacy he wanted to leave behind.
Although it did not make me laugh or cry, the book was very insightful.
I was struck by how intuitive Steve Jobs was in his business dealings rather than relying on reports or keeping close tabs on the competition. A truly in depth journey into the mind of Steve Jobs.

Reading it was like watching Forrest Gump, but for my generation. I felt like I was reliving so much of my growing up hearing his story. Steve Jobs was a great and fascinating person. We all owe him, but greatness comes at a price. The type of personality that produces such greatness also has a shadow side, as seen in his relationships and management style and failure to get the help he needed with his cancer.
One of the best, this is really how Steve Jobs was, nothing was left aside, despite the success, you can see where his flaws were, which only makes it human and you can learn what made him different!
The real person he was, simple, what I learned the best:
Not the best reading, but, it was good, keeps you engaged.
I'm an Android user, don't own any apple product at the time being, probably in the future, I really enjoyed this biography, and got to know more about Steve Jobs philosophy, very interesting concepts, ideas, and thinking, I recommend this to EVERYONE, not just for apple fans ;)
Objective writing and better reading.
Not necessarily, but I won't get this writer or reader again.
Being George Guidall, who can read the phone book and make it interesting.
I don't know what I was execting, but probably something well written, well read, and interesting. NOT. From the beginning, I found myself thinking this must have been commissioned by Steve Jobs, and wondering how much the author got paid to paint Jobs as being just too bright for his fellow humans, from his parents and teachers as a child, to his employees and

Very well read and written. Compelling story. Especially considering it is all true.
The inner workings of Apple, Steve's mind and how events propelled him to create innovation beyond anyone's expectation. The sadness at the end of a life cut short.
His tonality, his embodiment of Steve Jobs character and personality.
Not really. But I would listen to it again, it was that good.
Jobs wasn't the nicest human being, nor the most compassionate. But his strong will and driving intention changed the computer industry, the animation industry and the music industry.
