If you ever had doubts about your passion in life then listen to this book... you will never doubt yourself again
If you believe in something stick with it
The narration and the story was well put together so full credit to both Walter Isaacson and Dylan Baker in his delivery of an outstanding story.
For all those that worked with him, for him or knew him they would have their own version of Steve Jobs, but for the rest of us we will form our own thoughts based on what your heard or have read... but one thing none of us can change Steve Jobs has truly changed the way many in this world communicate..
Steve Jobs, the man accomplished so much in his life and the way he lived it is amazing. But it is not all sunshine that he lived
The narrator is ok but the audio quality isn't that great i.m.o
We are not fond by rules
Audio version is far better than print one, because you can walk while listening... just like Steve Jobs would do.
The one, when Steve Jobs says that he is an ordinary middle-class man. And he just does what he think is the best he could do.
Even if you hate Steve Jobs as a person, you must agree, that his influence was far and wide. And it would be good to know his motives. In any case, this book was written so anyone may have learn a little more about him.
The fact that he was true to his beliefs.
Feelings and nuances, it is almost dramatized.
Out of the box.
I got the kindle to be able to get books with me anywhere I go, Audible is so much better, I
As good as any
Jobs' interactions with other big players in business, Disney, Microsoft, adobe, etc
Impossible, too long, but I listened whenever I could over the week
Isaacson has put together a terrific biography, with views from all sides & comments from Jobs directly and archives, as well as perspectives from all kinds of people involved with Jobs throughout the years. This is no small feat and deserves accolades for the effort. Highly recommended.
It was so fascinating that for two weeks while I was listening to this audiobook, I was cut off from everything else. I would have to believe that even the greatest of story teller would have found it difficult to imagine a story that would be as fascinating as the real life events of Steve Jobs. Narration was fantastic, but the greatest part was the story. How the writer took a bird's eye view of Steve Jobs' life and wrote the autobiography in the most unbiased manner. Lastly, Steve Jobs with all his irrationality and ill behavior was still the greatest visionary of our times and whose contribution to our lives have been far greater than most people in this era.
Inspirational, petulant, but strangely likable.
Steve Jobs. It was interesting to find out more about Jobs' whirlwind personality. As I progressed through the book, Steve's annoying arrogance peeled away and revealed his true personality. Intelligent and rough around the edges.
No, but the narration was excellent. The narrator's voice took some getting used to, but I ended up liking his no-frill approach.
Jobs' written declaration of love toward his wife near the end of his life, uncovered his sensitive and human side. A rare and moving occurrence.
I really liked this book, because it's a brutally honest portrait of a truly inspirational technological leader. It doesn't attempt to
I love audio books, nuff said :-)
I haven't read the print edition. The voice is very in touch with the characters though. I
love it how it changes to suit Woz for example, or the other characters. You can tell that the characters are indeed from California.
Maybe the iWoz book
Mostly parts about Woz
Entertaining - Steve Jobs had an eventful life, he experimented, challenged convention, succeeded, failed, annoyed...and was anything but boring.
Challenging - this book challenged my views of good and evil, of the end justifying or not justifying the means .. of the liberties that are and should be granted to genius.
Moving - under everything is a a man, a child rejected by a mother and put up for adoption, and insecure adult, a manipulator and a person struggling with his own mortality.
This book describes one individuals journey through life. A unique journey but a universal one too as we have all suffered success and failure, rejection, been manipulated and manipulated others.. the human experience! The book teaches you about Steve Jobs but also about yourself, if you monitor your gut responses' to his behaviour.
I am still not sure what I think of Steve Jobs but I understand what a complex and extreme example he is of a human being. This book gives a window into how he thought and the importance he placed on his legacy - his products and his company.
Well done Walter Isaacson. Excellent narration by Dylan Baker.
