Walter Isaacson, once again, not only presenting the person, Steve Jobs, bit the entire US digital industri. It is like a thriller following the stories aboit Apple creating products we did not know we needed before it was released. And with the force of Steve Jobs creativity and energy. It is time, well invested, to listen to this amazing story.
Yes I would, Steve Jobs was a very complex person and this book gives you insight to some of his traits, it helps you understand the man behind the myth and gives you a good reference point and some nice quotes you can show off with latter.
Like all other biographical books this book shows an aspect of who the person was, but this is also biased by the authors own point of view, you'd need to read a couple more books to have a better, rounded perspective.
The performance was pretty good, it was not distracting and not being a novel the voice actors don't try to dramatize the content which is refreshing but also makes it easier to listen to. So there are no favorite characters, just the overall experience.
Steve Jobs was a successful entrepreneur that had to learn recover from his mistakes, if not learn from them, I believe the key strength he had was the ability to identify an opportunity and his unwavering commitment to excellence.
I appreciate both a lot the work of Steve Jobs and of Walter Isaacson telling about it. Too bad Steve Jobs died so early, he could do way more. I guess, he continues inspire people and this makes him live.
A fantastic insight into a man who's complex life has affected all of our lives. A very comprehensive account that shows how Apple and Pixar became the companies they are today. Dylan Baker does a great job narrating this book. I highly recommend it.
