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.

Say something about yourself!
Enjoyed listening to the biography of a man who embodied all that was human Perhaps he rode roughshod over some but always those persons would have turned out to be better human beings. Truth can never be compromised and that message comes screaming when we delve into Steve's life.
Isaacson does a thorough job of telling this real life and almost unbelievable tale.
It's great that he offers an opinion on the Mac vs everything else debate, and generally he does an excellent job, although sometimes his conclusions lack nuance.
I knew the order that everything happened in, but the brilliance of this book is the insight and detail into the people that it offers. So even as a technophile I learned a lot about key people, including Jobs and Gates. And Isaacson must be applauded for definitely not writing a one-sided account.
The narration was very professional but I never really got the feeling that I was being told a story - they were words being read.
