Because the history is fascinating.
The history of Steve Jobs and his characteristics about design and development.
I do not know in this moment.
A great history about innovation.
No, that's all.
With Atlas Shrugged one of the best audiobooks I ve ever heard
Jobs of course.
It inspired me
Não acho que faz sentido ouvir de novo. Talvez apenas algumas partes com bookmarks
Mostrar como Jobs era um cara perturbado, apesar do investimento que fez em seus estudos budistas. O pouco que sei dessa filosofia mostra que aceitar as pessoas como elas são é um dos primeiros passos. Jobs estava longe disso.
Era uma personalidade complexa, como diz o livro.
Também me mostrou que boa parte do sucesso da Apple e da Pixar tem a ver com o talento da equipe. não dele. Sim, ele era um bom negociador. Agressivo, sem dúvida.
Ele também aprendeu muito com os anos. O primeiro Mac, apesar de apresentar muitas inovações, também tinha muitos problemas, fruto de sua cabeça dura à época. Ao longo do tempo ele passou a ouvir mais sua equipe. Mas não muito.
It's probably not easy to write a book about one of the greatast men of our times working in tech. Dylan Baker does a great job in narrating this book and it really makes you understand so many things about Apple better. Recommend it!
I listened to it while walking and traveling, in my case it suited me better.
nothing so far comes close
no, but it will be in my thoughts for a long time, I think there is plenty of business and life lessons to learn from this book.
A great book about a truly great man, a genius who was at all times true to his own Self. One feels humbled, grateful, and terribly sad that the world has lost Steve Jobs. A great loss.
I didn't know the history before listening to this book, so it was very interesting listening, and its hero is truly inspirational! Larger than life.
I'm a teacher overseas. I listen because its nice to hear your native language without music or pictures.
It's in the top 10 definitely.
Thinking of Steve walking around stinking, long haired and barefoot in 1980s office culture is hilarious.
The whole book lets you into the life and thinking of a genius, how can you not be moved?
I had to stop for a bit before starting the other parts as Steve's lifestyle was invading my own.
Innovation, Art, Focus
There were several, but the visit to Xerox is memorable.
No I haven't listened to this before
The holy grail of innovation
After listening to this audiobook I realized I really underestimated Steve Jobs and Apple. I had the fortune to work for Apple in Japan, from 2008 to 2011, almost 4 years were I got to know the company very close. It took me a while to embrace this book and finally read it since I have read a couple of books about Jobs, I just thought this was gonna be much of the same. Another deterrent from reading it was that its 22+ hours length, which I thought it was too much time to invest in a book about a man and I company I thought I knew enough about.
However, this book proved to be different from what I expected. It was a conversation from the hear and mind of Steve Jobs, narrating through Issacson the most intimate details of his life and the history of Apple, Next and Pixar. The book is dense and covers a lot of interesting anecdotes and details about Job's personal and professional life that include the evolution of Apple's technology, into what it is today.
My respect and admiration for Steve Jobs grew every day I listened to this audiobook, his life and achievements are something that beats human ability, it is like something sacred or superhuman was pushing this man forward. He revolutionized almost every industry, computer, movie, music, telecommunications, manufacturing, advertising, etc.. He set the standards for a new, more innovative and advanced world. In his words, he "pushed the world forward".
His death is a real loss for humanity, he died relatively young, who knows what he would've done I've he had survived cancer. How would the future on the next 2 decades would've been if Steve Jobs had been there?
It doesn't matter if you loved or hated him this book is an excellent biography of a man who was passionate and driven by everything in his life. His attention to detail was obsessive. This book may reinforce your love or hate for Steve Jobs, or like me give you a better perspective into a very complex character.
His legacy whatever your opinion will live on, but like him you and I won't be around to test the validity of our views.
